Gente I’m Back at Running!

Hi!

Gente means People in English! Is a expresion that is common where I’m from.

I’m so happy and excited to let you guys know that I started running again.

Where I was living is a place with high altitud and dry, it was a pain in the bom bom running because I always were out of breath. Also for a moment I was using a pump for asthma. I couldn’t run far or fast.

We just move to another state with a normal altitud and weather. So I decided to give it a try. I went to the fitness room I started to run. I decided to run 0.50 mi. At first I was like “oh my god” then I was like “oh yeah”, I miss this. I love doing this. This is the perfect state of mind. I’m so happy that I run that distance in a good pace. It wasn’t my goal pace but you need to start like a novice.

So today was the second try of running. Let me tell it went better than I expected. I ran 0.60mi in a better pace, breathing well during the process. I’m looking forward to this journey again. I’m so glad of this move. In life you need to make hard decisions and soon or later you have your reward.


HAPPY. GRATEFUL. BLESSED

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…!

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.
