Go RUN!

Hi!

This is a short post…

This week had been a little busy, crazy and a lot going on…which is good! I still doing my runs in the days I can. On Friday I needed to run, I had one of those days that I need me time, clear my mind, and just be relaxed. My method is RUNNING! On Friday it didn’t happen. So on Saturday I woke up, put on my running clothes and when for a run. In this run a lot happen. I was very committed to run non-stopping and I was focus. You know the mind is powerful.  I ran 1.70mi non-stopping which It never happen before and I have been running short distance since 2013. I stopped for a while and this year 2017 I started again at it. This happen because I was determined that this was the goal, this is what I want. So Is happening!  I completed a 2.75mi. run. It felt and still feels good that I achieve this. This is just the beginning, I’m going for more!!!

Warm up RUN

Hi!

First Run of the Year

Starting from the bottom!

Today I decided to go out for a run. The weather was 33°F, it was a little colder than I was expecting but that’s what you get when you decided to run in winter. Right!

I just ran 0.50 mi. I was feeling like I was slow like a turtle, then I check my pace I was running like my normal pace but in some point I was short of breath. Then I walk a little and started running again to finish with little distance for today run. I got a little frustrated but this is just the beginning. I know that sometimes is going to be harder, the thing that matter is not quitting.

This is my year I’M NOT Giving up!

Good Luck everyone with every goal that you make for this year! Don’t give up…!

Not Running!

Hi!

I hope you started your new year 2016 with new goals.

My goal for now is run a race on June. For that to happen I need to work more in me. My body, my core and my mind. I started doing push-up Today is January 8,2016. And yesterday I did (7) seven push-up, that’s amazing for a person that never was able to do one. On January 15,2016. I’m going to start with my abdomen, by doing some sit-up military style “I prefer that way”.

I had been working on my diet, like starting from zero again. I’m trying to not eat candy. I’m trying to not drink Coke “Yep, that’s is a bad habit”. I started drink coke again in 2015. I didn’t drink coke since February 2012. I know I can do this again! I also trying to cut my portions little by little. I’m cooking more, like every meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner). I’m going to eat less outside or if I do it, I’m going to try the most healthy option on the menu.

This is more hard that I ever think. Is like baby steps.

But I’m not a quitter, so I’m going to keep doing the challenge.

You need to start from something, Right!

 

Let’s do this!

July 6, 2013. My first local fun run 5k event = Sucess!!!

Hi!

On July 6, 2013. for the first time I participated in a fun run 5k event. To start, We drove 3hrs to get there, somewhere in the Midwest. When we got there went to register because this 5k event wasn’t plan; also to get a towel, the t-shirt and the number. The race start at 10:00am I was so excited for this experience; everything start at the beginning I felt I was going very fast then my breathing was a little bit harder so I reduce my pace to ran in a comfort one. Everything went fine; I finished it in 42:00min. The weather wasn’t the best, was very hot almost 90 degrees.

Was a great experience… I’m so happy to down done one of my goals.

Thanks

July 02, 2013. Running in the drizzle.

Hi!

I ran 3.13 miles non-stopping in 39:51 minutes with 12’43″/mi avg pace. I ran in the middle of the drizzle that was fun. This run included: Pavement, sidewalk, stair, grass, a hill, and beach view. Was a great run, it feel so awesome changing the area. I like the fresh air in the area, see a new people and have another experience in my running. For the most part of this run everything feel great: my feet, my knees, my legs and my breath was fine. That’s a good sign and I’m so happy.

This Training July start succesfully. Only 18 days left for my first 5k.

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.
