June 14,2013. Flag Day Run! + Disappointment

Hi!

Is nice make any excuse for a run. So I decided that I will run today because I was changing my route. I mostly run in the sidewalk but this time I change it to pavement. It was hard; the impact feels hard in the body; that makes my pace slow.

I was a little bit disappointed because my time for 2.00mi changed a by a few minutes. I was running in a slow pace that made you feel your legs are sore.

I believe that the mind is very powerful, and I say to my self in the process that I can do it. “I not going to stop running for nothing”, so I keep moving. I try to convince my self, that if I want I need to give a little bit extra.

I try to think about the different things that could change and do not help me to accomplish the run in a good time.

  • My diet on my birthday was the worst ever, I ate pizza and cake.
  • I’m not doing any other type of exercise beside running.
  • I drink coffee with regular sugar.
  • I eat red meat, bread and rice.

I know that I need to change few things to have a better performance in my running schedule.

Starting on Sunday June 16, 2013. I going to change the way I eat and on the days I do not run,I will do some type of physical exercise. I know this is going to be hard, but I can do it. I know this is going to change the way I run and going to give me the necessary resistance.

Finally the important thing here that I did it and I don’t give up.

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
