One hour run.

I was supposed to do 6.5 miles today but I stopped at 4.66 because of a niggling pain in my Achilles. I’m so disappointed and not sure how I can keep myself injury free.

I’m trying to stay positive and keep the faith that I am still getting stronger each run,  but my splits this run were not good. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Maybe because I was running on the track? Or because I could see our car from the track and I knew my husband was waiting for me with the baby? It feels like it’s turning into a mental battle and I’m not able to run in the carefree way I was running before I injured my knee.

So many updates.

So I am running a lot, but writing very little. The amazing thing is I’ve managed to stay pain free. I’m trying to learn as much about running as I can to be able to train effectively.

Tonight we are meeting with a local running coach to learn some speed drills on a track. How awesome is that? I’m so glad I’m doing it now when I don’t feel like a complete beginner because at least I feel like I’ll survive the drills.

Over the last week, I feel like I’ve seen massive improvement in both my times and endurance. Now basically all my runs are 3 miles. I remember the days when 1 mile seemed crazy, lol.

One day I had to run on the treadmill and I was able to run 3 miles without stopping. My husband told me not to get too excited because running on the treadmill is easier lol. Always keeping me grounded.

I’m doing the Galloway method and feel like I’m having success. My last 2 runs have been running 2:30 walking 1 minute. I’m looking forward to increasing to 3:1.

You can see in my last 2 runs, a big improvement running the same 2:30:1.

I’ll have another post from the speed drills tonight and another post coming soon about some gear I’ve recently bought.

2015 Disney Glass Slipper Challenge

I officially signed up for my first half marathon! I’m super stoked to be running the 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon and 10K. I had to sign up through a charity partner (Children’s Miracle Network- Amazing cause!) since the race was completely sold out. That means if I don’t raise the minimum amount of $1200, I don’t race. So, with that said, would my online friends consider making a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network on my behalf?

PLEDGE

I’m asking for a pledge of $1 per mile, so that means a total of $19.30. Your donation will go a long way to helping me reach this awesome goal of running a 10K and a Half Marathon all in the same weekend!
