Life is hard, not impossible

Hi!

I just want to let you know that I’m sorry for taking a break from blogging without letting you know.  It was good not thinking in about what to post next, It was nice to be offline too.

Life sometimes put you in places to prove how strong you are. In my case taking care of my baby by my own, the household; including my marriage; It was hard. I’m not complaining about it because I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to raise my child and be stay-home mom. Thanks God for giving me the knowledge, patience and love to carry this responsibilities. For this reason it was hard to keep going with the blog. My main theme it was my running journal; which I had stop running for multiple reason, one of them was my knees problem, maybe later I can write about it. I wasn’t  running so I don’t have anything to post about. I also tried to add a new thing here in my blog, about the book I was currently reading. That activity consume most of my free time so I stop it too. I know, I feel like I gave up few of the thing I love to do. It felt like that at one moment but I know it was a good decision.

This is just a update.

 


Thanks for reading!

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.

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
