MY first 5k with the stroller!

Hi!

Today I wake up early with an goal in mind.

I went for a run, this time with my daughter on the stroller. Went for 2.00 miles but in the process I changed my mind and push a little bit. I ended up running my first 5k with her on the stroller; hills, the weight, the wind, etc… wasn’t a obstruction to keep me going.  I’m so happy and feel accomplish.

Other fact was that my time and pace was stupendous.

I did 3.11mi run on  [time: 39:16-pace 12:37]

 

Set your goal and GO FOR IT!

Don’t forget I’m now on IG [@catherine_run1]

First 10k event recap

HI!!!

Today I did my first 10k event.

It was an amazing experience running with 4,200 women. I was so nervous and excited to achieve this goal that I couldn’t sleep well but when I woke up my energy was 100%.  I’m so glad that with a short time to train I put myself the goal of doing it and I accomplished it with a best personal record [PR =personal record of -5min and 9 seconds].

One mile

Hi! (short)

I want to celebrate that I finally ran 1.01mi non-stop and pain free. Yes… I’m so happy for this achivement. That injury took longer that I expected to recover but the wait worth it.

Patient is the key.

In another post I’m going to write about the stuff I did to recover.

I risk it (short)

Hi!

After 4 months in recovery. For a twisted ankle that left with 3 swollen ligaments and effusion in the area just for a bad landing playing volleyball. Today I finally ran without any pain. This took a lot of patient of me. I felt very frustrated that it took so long. This run felt amazing it was just 0.51mi… But without pain this is goals. Recovery is important. I’m not sure if I can still play volleyball again yet but I’m sure that for running this is just the beginning. Back at it. I know is going to take time but I so happy and grateful be back slow and short pace and distance but for sure is more that stay at home with a brace and a elevated leg almost all day during long days, weeks and months…

Planning my next training

Hi!

I still running not the distance I want but at least is something. Right!

I want to start planning my next training schedule to achieve the distance I want to before my new goal distance event. Which is a 10k. Yes I’m so excited to this new chapter in my running journey, is something I have been think about, since my health is good and the doctor gave me the green light. This is what I’m looking forward to accomplish.

My longest run was 5.00mi years ago. It was on November 2013. I remember it was the running/walking type of run. I also remember it wasn’t plan at all. It was fantastic.

So this week my training start. I have 17 weeks to training. So I have a chart with the distance/workout I want to complete each day per week. I add some workout at home and the rest days. Everything can be modified and the chart is good to be accountable and obtain motivation.

Let’s see how it goes…!!
