Some of you may recall a few weeks ago, I was a bit down about my running. Set me on Fire. And, as you may recall, I am a Phoenix, I am going to rise and be even more awesome than before. 🙂
So, yesterday was another balmy 40 degrees here in Massachusetts, so I decided, I needed to go for a run. I need to work on my running. So, what the heck, right? Lets do it.
I put out the Facebook word to see if anyone wanted to go for a run – my brother in law, JR, answered the call. I gotta hand it to him, he was a great running partner, keeping me going and keeping me above my pace, without me even realizing it. My goal was to get at least a mile since I have not run that far in a while. I usually run at 15 min mile. Yesterday, I did 1.34 miles in 18:50 – did a 14 min/mile! Shaved a minute off my pace! So happy about that. There are quite a few runs I want to do this year, so I need to work on this.
When I put the call out to see if anyone wanted to run, one of my pals from the gym piped in and suggested running today = so , you guessed it. We are going to run the lake in Wakefield. Hoping I can make at least 2 miles, but with a buddy, I might just be able to do the whole thing 🙂
Wish me luck ! Gotta Keep Swimming!
