For the past week or so I’ve been running 3.11 miles every day and doing Bikram Yoga. Such a good feeling to sweat like that, on my way to a summer bod :)
Follow me through my trials of many different workouts in an attempt to find one that works for me and improve my fitness, self-image and body.About Me Ask me anything
6.5 Mile run, felt like I could’ve gone forever but it was getting dark!
Wish me luck!
…Well my post hangover-run proved to be more of a walk/run. I only did 1 mile but I think even just getting out and enjoying the fresh air and getting some semblance of exercise is a great habit to get into. Also (although totally not an excuse) my knee is bothering me a lot lately (probably from running so often after not running for a few months) so it may be good to take a day off.
Goal: run 5 miles (in one go) this week!
Lovely run this morning, perfect running weather (in the 60s) and done by 11 am!
About to attempt a 6 mile run (the longest run I’ve done in a longggg time). I’m hoping my 2 3 milers yesterday will make this manageable! Wish me luck!
Attempt 1: failure, just didn’t have it in me only ran 1.65 miles interspersed with walking.
Attempt 2: non-existant… took a nap instead haha
After a day of reading for grad school I am in desperate need of a run… my second run of the day and another great 3.1 miles :)
Just finished todays 30 day shred. I still struggle with keeping up with the squats, side lunges and push ups the whole time but I am getting better and have mastered the rest of the work out. I know by day 10 when I move up to level 2 I will have completed the work out. Now for a run :)
Feeling really good. Still struggling with doing push ups the whole time in the 2nd round and the side lunges the whole time but other than that I did the full work out today. Hopefully I’ll be noticing some changes in the next 30 days!
Yesterday, I ran the Foxboro Against Diabetes 5K at an 8:45 pace in 27:07 minutes. The fastest 5K I’ve ever done! I’m so proud of myself. I came in number 17 out of 180 for my age group (20-29).
Last night, I went out to dinner and to a bar with a friend and one of her friends (who she had previously tried to set me up with before but I was just starting things up with my ex at the time) came and met us with his friend. We really hit it off and were acting very couple-ly by the end of the night (holding hands, kissing, cuddling at her house after). It was really great to meet a nice guy (he’s a cop in her town and is my age). The whole night he was telling me how he wished he knew we were being set up last time because he was kind of shy and he liked me but didn’t do anything about it and how we “wasted 2 months that we could’ve been spending time together”. He was really respectful and when we were on my friends couch kissing he said to me “I like you more than just this you know”- meaning not just a hook up. He asked me out on a date tonight and is coming to pick me up (I live like 50 minutes away) and take me out to dinner. Last night he said he “wants to spend as much time with me as he can”. He was just incredibly sweet and I really like him already. It was really refreshing to meet such a nice genuine guy. Also, he touched my stomach at one point when we were cuddling (which is my “problem area”) and was like “wow, you really are in great shape”- that’s enough for me to fall for him right there haha!
