Running!

March 20, 2014

Well, I’m moving right along on the 5K training. Yesterday involved a 5 minute warm up, followed by a 10 minute run, 3 minute walk, 10 minute run, 5 minute cool down. I did it all, and I did it all outside! Yay!!

Today is a 22 minute run…..WITHOUT STOPPING!! Yeah, I mean I guess that’s the whole idea, huh? Tess did it Tuesday (she is a few day’s ahead of me), so I gotta do it!! We’re just a few weeks away from running the actual Color Run on April 12th in Dallas!!

After completing the 5K part of my exercise, I walked another 40 minutes! It was beautiful outside!

I’m ready for the 70’s today and Spring!! ARE YOU???
