I did it!
Yesterday was the first day the training app had me running 28 minutes. I did it, and it wasn’t all that bad. I was supposed to run 28 for three days before moving on to 30. I said “fuck it” this morning, and I ran 30. This is a milestone for me, as it was my first really solid running goal. It also allows me to make the loop around the greenway in just the amount of time I have available for running (on weekday mornings, anyway).
I’m going to reward myself by taking it easy and just working on getting more comfortable with the 30 minute runs around the greenway before I tackle any new challenges. The direction I go is relatively mild hill-wise, and the hardest part ends right about the time I hit the halfway point. I think that when it starts to feel a little easy, I’m going to switch directions, as there are a couple of challenging hills when going the other way. I’d like to have a nice butt at some point in my life.
Oh, I also rewarded myself with some Peeps, because I FUCKING LOVE PEEPS.
I listened to a playlist that is borrowed from one I found on Design*Sponge. The theme should be relatively obvious. Some of it isn’t really running-friendly, but I enjoy it, so who cares? Also, I’ve had Astral Weeks stuck in my head all day!
