1/2 way to Disney & 4 Miles!

Run Disney

I am SUPER excited to share that I’ve reached the halfway point in my fundraising for Children’s Miracle Network and we’re now working on my husband’s fundraiser so he can run the princess Half Marathon and 10K (Glass Slipper Challenge) with me! Hotel room is BOOKED, budget is set, Here We Come!!

I’ve been running the Galloway method for this upcoming training 3 times a week, and have had some really awesome runs. I’m not cutting any corners because we actually want to survive running 19 miles that weekend! I am feeling so strong and loving my runs. I’ve found that I run best to Katy Perry and less fast to audio books, but I still like changing it up and doing a little of both.

Are you on Garmin Connect or Nike Plus? Add me as a friend and let’s challenge and encourage each other!

I’m here on Garmin: Lisette

and here on Nike+: Lisette

Here are my latest run stats:

I am still not running a super fast pace, but it’s not super slow either. Ok… Not sure who I’m kidding, it is pretty slow, but I’m getting stronger and able to run the same pace on a more consistent basis, so I’m ready to speed up the turnover a little! Looking forward to tomorrow’s run since the Galloway program only includes 3 runs a week. I may increase that to 4 on my own, and incorporate more cross training. My back really starts to get sore after the longer runs so I want to strengthen my core to feel more comfortable over a longer distance.

Those are my thoughts for now! Can’t wait till my next run!

I’m BACK! Friday and Saturday’s Run/Walks

Who’s back?! I’m back! I have done 2 very short runs the last few days and I feel FANTASTIC. My last run was Saturday morning, and these are my stats.

I’ve been doing run/walk intervals. Friday I did 1 minute walk, 1 minute run for 1 mile, and Saturday I did 2 minute run 1 minute walk. I’m super pleased with how I feel. My Asics felt great, I’m so happy about that.

I rested yesterday and today since I had some soreness in my shin muscles, but I’ll be back at it tomorrow.

4 Miles. Fastest Mile. Knee Pain. Annoyed.

Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 11.51.52 AM

I ran my fastest mile yesterday by nearly a minute! I ran an 11:27 mile during my 4 mile run/walk, and my fastest 5K in 43 minutes. I hustled on purpose knowing I wanted to run my best mile and improve my time on each run. Now I can’t help but wonder if I pushed it a little too hard. My knee was giving me little twinges the last 2 days (since Tuesday) and I was hoping my rest days Wednesday and Thursday would help it go away. It did help somewhat, but during my run it was definitely bothering me. I hope it’s nothing. Mike says if I can put pressure on it, it’s not too bad. I can put pressure on it, but the pain is when I move it, so I’m trying to move gingerly so it doesn’t get too stiff or too injured. The constant squatting up and down to pick up the baby isn’t doing me any favors either.

My 4 mile run felt really good, although since I was pushing myself at the end, I didn’t run the entire last mile and a half, I had to stop and walk a couple of times, but I didn’t let myself walk too much (just a few steps at a time) and then picked it back up running. My audiobook is riveting, so I look forward to listening to it each run.

I took a picture of my shoes and socks because I laughed at myself that I feel like a real runner since I don’t care how my shoes and socks look anymore when I go out. It’s all about comfort. I’ve found a sock length I like and my shoes feel comfortable, although now I wonder if I will need a shoe with more cushion¬†than my Brooks so my knees and ankles don’t take such a pounding.

I’m mildly annoyed today because my Garmin running watch isn’t syncing to the app (and thus uploading online). It was working just fine before, and I switched phones, and now all of a sudden no more uploading. ::sigh:: I guess there are worse things to be annoyed about, but I really like uploading the map/times with each post.

I’ve started my Indiegogo Campaign to raise money for the Disney Princess Half Marathon and 10K, you can check out this post for more information on how to support me!
