I was totally jazzed this morning as I decided to push myself in today’s run after being inspired by Princess Cupcake’s former third grade teacher who usually runs a few miles. The past two venues I’ve run at only get me so far so I decided to hit the local, busy street.
My FitBit stats:
What started me running in the first place was that I wanted to run with the tween in her next 5K. I figured my goal is a minimum of 3.25 miles. I’ve been running 2.25 – 2.5 miles since this month started.
Today was a surprise at my endurance. I purposely mapped out 1.5 miles away so I’d get 3 miles by the time I get back. I started running from our house which tacked on the extra.
My legs will be sore tonight but it’ll be well worth it! I love how running has changed my body and how it makes me feel healthy and strong. Last month I found out I lost 5 lbs. this summer. I finally feel like an athlete as I was always shy to get into sports as a child. I guess after trying this distance out I can’t go back?
During this hot spell, I’ve just been focusing on charity sock #1.
2 x 2 Ribbing: 8 rounds
Leg: 64 rounds to reach 6.5″
Heel flap – check!
The heel turn was knitted yesterday in one session because I knew I would forget which side I was supposed to work on if I put the project down. I watched a YouTube video to refresh my memory about where to start with the gusset, but silly me should have read the directions first as Ann Budd had it all laid out.
So the gusset was completed as well and now I’m working on the decreasing before I start the foot rounds.
Where have you had some growth – personal or professional – recently? And what are your plans this weekend?
