I couldn't let this day go by without getting my running shoes on and hitting the pavement.
Anyway, back to the actual run! This run was much, much harder than I wanted it to be. Two miles shouldn't have felt as difficult as these did. I kept getting a really bad side cramp and I was even thankful to stop at the stoplights to stretch it out. Bleh. I need to get my endurance back!
Thursday was happy hour with the new interns. And shockingly enough, 3 beers and no water before bed made for pretty crappy hydration for my run before work this morning. Who knew?
I'm dedicating the next few weeks to getting back into shape so when I start half-marathon training in August, I'm not starting from scratch. I want a solid running base so those 3 and 4 milers feel effortless!
This year's running goal:
It's official! I registered last week. I'm looking forward to doing my training runs on the course, so there will be no surprises on race day (I'm talking about you, Pinehurst half marathon with your "rolling hills"). I'm excited about getting back into a training schedule with a weekly post of my progress!
Happy Running everyone!
