Santa’s 5k (recap)

Hi!

I know I was missing in action. For health, moving, new place ‘state’ issues I didn’t wrote or updated anything in this blog.

Let’s start with this Santa’s 5k recap.

This event was on Saturday, December 14, 2013.

Place: Veterans Park | Milwaukee, WI

Weather: 19 degrees F. Snowing a lot.

Fun fact: [ This place is near Lake Michigan ]

The area was cover with snow, so that difficult the run. It was hard, maybe we take to many minutes to made it to the finish line but we did it!

I went with my husband and my two running partners and friends.

Here a photo from that day.

June 25, 2013. Not Enough!

Hi!

Today the weather in my area during the morning was raining like crazy. In the afternoon the lovely sun came out raising the temperature. Until the night that finally got to a good temperature. So decided to run but this time at the gym because was almost 8:00pm. I start running in the treadmill. I was doing fine since the treadmill stop. I almost fell. I didn’t expect that.

When I check my phone to verify the distance I was only in 0.39mi in 3:56min. I try to start again I set the treadmill and ran for few minutes so I check my phone again and the app stay on 0.39mi but this time was 6:58min. I was like “what the hell” is happening. So I decided to run in the pavement since the treadmill and the app don’t work well together. And I want a record in my profile. So I get out of the gym and start running I was so happy because it feel so good and I run 1.07mi in 12:38min / pace 11’46″/mi.

Also when I get home I did some workout too, (5 pushups & 25 sit up ‘military style’).
This image is just for the pavement run because the treadmill run was a fail.

June 17, 2013. A little bit more…

Hi!
Today was like every single Monday in my life. I was tired, I don’t want to do anything beside stay in bed all day. But I have a training plan so I can not skip the days.
Today I ran with company, my amore!
He told me “You need to push a little bit harder today”. I was like “oh yeah” because I love challenges.
So we change our usual route to extend the run .50mi more.
And I did it!!! Run 2.50miles!!!
I was feeling very sore. I reaches the point that it did not feel my feet and I felt exhausted but I keep running and I culminate what I started.

2.50miles – pace: 12’30”/mi – 31:17min.

Wednesday June 12, 2013. Birthday Run

Hi!

Today was a fun long day. I woke up early in the morning. I spent the day with my amore; we eat lunch together, then for a little shopping and the rest of the afternoon in his office. When we get home, I get ready to hit the road, that was my plan yesterday so I did it.

I run my fastest 1.00mile Finally!!!

[ 1.00mi10:29min – pace 10’32″/min – temperature 56F degrees ]
[ Also my fastest 1k – 6:34min.]

Four weeks ago was 10:56min the mile. (note: one of my goals is do the 2.00miles in 20mins) The difference is minimun but it feels so good. The difference was :27 seconds.

Next I put a photo for record also the badges I earn for the fastest mile run and for running on my birthday.

I use nike + running app for iphone.

 Thanks
