5 miles feels fine :)

This is the first 5 miler during the week that I have experienced. I was dreading running this on the treadmill. I can only bare about 3 miles before becoming totally bored, even with the tv on. I walked outside and realized it wasn't as cold as I thought it was going to be. So, I ran/walked 2 miles outside around our townhouse complex. Then I went into the workout room and did 3 miles on the treadmill. I ran about .25 miles outside, a mile straight through on the treadmill and then spurts of a couple .25 miles on the treadmill. I did 5 total miles in 1 hour and 3 minutes!!!!!!

Which makes me happy to say this....after googling for the past 3 days about how to get my new nike plus sensor to connect to my iphone, I finally found a forum that showed me how to get my new sensor to work! I was so mad that I couldn't get it to work...and then by doing what that forum told me, it magically worked! Boy, I was getting ready to be really mad at apple and give them a piece of my mind!!!

Overall, I think my workout went pretty well considering my throat and ears are starting to hurt again...heaven forbid I get another case of strep throat :( Oh the joys of the first year of teaching and teaching 1st graders. Even though this has nothing to do with running, I love it and HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!!!!!

  2. Hey girl - just got your comment and I'm excited to see you're training for your first 1/2! I am also running it this year, but I am running it as a pace team leader for the 2:15 pace group. I'm really excited about getting to help people reach their time goal! Let's keep in touch!
