3 miles @ work (10:45)

24 Apr

Comments: The song from Daniel Powter “Bad Day” fits today. But I was able to turn it around! I am feeling 100% better after my run, perhaps a bit tired, but I’ll take that.

I ran the first mile straight without stopping (10:10) and I haven’t done that since my training for the full marathon in October ’07. Then I walked a minute and then ran until I had mile 2 (10:57) under my belt. I did the same to get mile three done (11:08). I am hoping to be able to continue that trend.

My stomach still acts up several times a day, however it doesn’t give me trouble while running. After May 3rd (Indy 1/2 marathon) I’ll be going back to the gastologist requesting that he’ll do a colonoscopy. The pain however is nothing compared to what I had in the beginning of the year. None the less I think it’s come to a point where it is not getting any better.

Stopped at the Columbus Running Co last night. I bought a shirt and some “Yankz” shoe laces (Pink “For the Cure”). I still have $40 left of my gift certificate! My running shoes were at work and I wasn’t able to put the laces on last night. So first thing this morning I tried putting them on my shoes, it didn’t feel right. But I haven’t given up. The shoes are coming home tonight and I’ll be able to spend more time on getting the laces just right. 🙂

I also bought a running shirt, but didn’t try it on. The plan was to wear it today at lunch, but with me being so overweight my current build it doesn’t look very flattering. I am going to hold on to the shirt and my goal is to be able to wear it before the summer is over. It sucks being vein!

Fun facts: My previous shoes had 294 miles on it, bringing the cost to $0.31 per mile ran! Hmmm, it is cheaper to drive that distance in my car (for now at least).

    Hi Penny

    I hope all is well with the running and sounds like that was a pretty solid 3. Congrats on running that whole mile and that is a great accomplishment since I know you haven’t been able to do that for a while.. I’ll bet it felt great. BTW, I here you on the stomach pain as mine is always giving me problems as well.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and being so kind and supportive.

    As always, best of luck.
