Graduation and a fresh start to running

15 May

FINALLY – Graduation is behind me! I now FINALLY have my 4 year degree in management. (little happy dance) Not sure where this will take me professionally, but getting my diploma felt just like crossing the finish line of a marathon (my feet weren’t quite as sore though!). With school (for now) behind me, I am going to FINALLY concentrate back on what I love to do and that is running.

Bachelors of Science in Management from Franklin University

Running since last post:

May 5th: 4 miles

May 9th: 4 miles

May 10th: 4 miles

May 11th: 4 miles

May 12th: 6 miles (fast pace walking)

May 15th: 6 miles

Overall mileage last week (May 9th – May 15th): 18 (not including the 6 mile walk)

Currently  I am not fast enough for me to track my speed. I run between a 12 to 13 min/mile. I am hoping that with speed training and strengths exercises I can get that back to 10:30 min miles. At least that’s my goal.

I was on vacation the last week, enjoying my sister’s stay, who came to see me graduate. Even though she’s not going home to Germany for another week, I’ll be going back to work. This means I can start working on strength training again. 🙂

Bought new running shoes (Saucony – ProGrid Guide 4), my last pair was the Guide 2. Apparently it’s been a while since I upgraded my shoes! 😀 I also have purchased the Garmin Forerunner 405 (without H/R monitor). I wish it could be a bit smaller and track actually running speed instead of overall lap speed. I might do a product review on the 405 later on down the road. It replaced the Garmin Forerunner 205, which I still have.
