I did a good stretching out on Sunday, and boy did that feel good!
I set out to do an easy 3, last night. I was being cautious, I didn't know how it would feel. My mouth is still very achy and I have stitches. Dr told me I had to keep my work outs to the light side until he saw me again tomorrow (Wednesday).
So...I started running...and hit 3 miles I was...I am going to just keep going another mile. Jamming out to my favorite tunes, enjoying the night time weather and RUNNING again.
Running all over the place...I had no idea how many miles I had run, until I mapped it out online, when I got home.
I felt absolutely great. I didn't feel I pushed it AT ALL, but based on the time I left and came home I was running close to a 9 min pace most of the time. Not bad for an easy run, huh?
I felt like Forrest Gump...
Some have asked how I stayed hydrated since I was only going to run for 3 miles. My number rule of thumb - I never leave for ANY run, for ANY distance without my hydration bottle. I carry a larger Ultimate Direction Handheld, so it holds all the water I need for up to 13 miles. I also run by several stores & gas stations, so if I need to refill water, I can do that.
12 days until San Francisco Half
18 days until ET Full
Have you ever had a Forrest Gump run? Feel free to share.............
P.S. Some have asked about the BIG giveaway contest I have planned. I am still working on prizes! Stay tuned
