5k and 6

02 Mar

I ran 3.1 on the treadmill on Friday, took the day off on Saturday and ran 6 outside on Sunday.

The hubby peddled beside me on Friday. We watched a movie while we worked out. That was kind of nice having him there. I am hoping to be able to drag him down there with me twice a week! 🙂

On Sunday I was going to run with the group, but got a text from my friend Annaliesa just as I was heading out saying she couldn’t make it, so I decided to save 2 hours of driving time and just run at home.

The first 3 miles were into the wind. Urgh! That’s not fun. The only thing that kept me going was knowing that I would have that wind in my back on the return route. The run was not nearly as much fun nor as fast as the one two weeks ago. However, I am glad I got it done. 🙂

    Congrats on getting the 6 miles done. Six miles always seems like a LOT at this time of year.

    Good job on the running! Especially in the wind, that’s my least favorite weather to run in. I feel like running with bricks on my feet when it’s windy!

    It is so nice to be able to get the spouse involved. My wife is nice enough to go the gym with me, but she ditches me as soon as we get there.

    I always try and start out into the wind as it is so nice to have it at your back as you are getting tired.

    Best of luck with everything!

    Sometimes I find just getting a race done is an accomplishment. But it makes us stronger for the next one…at least I hope it does. 🙂
