Running and violins

Hey guys!

My run was fairly decent yesterday. I couldn't quite do 3 miles like I planned though. I did 2.67.

It was hot yesterday so I waited unil 6pm to go to our apartment gym. I immediately reegretted it as a man in a plastic suit running on the treadmill next to me kept sprinking sweat on me. His sweat was seriously flying all over the room. GROSS. So gross.

The treadmills at our gym max out at 30 minutes so my goal is to run as much as I can in 30 minutes. I ran 2 miles in 26 minutes (my average pace was 13:00 min/mile. I had my ipod on random and the best songs came on. I swear the slower paced the song, the easier it was for me to run. Faster music just made me push myself a little too much.

I ran 3 minutes at an 11 minute pace/3 mins at a 14 min pace and alternated. After the 30 minutes on the treadmill were up, I walked around my apartment complex at a decent pace.

I have noticed that taping my knees helps a ton. They are bugging me today but it's not as bad as usual. Icing really helps too.

The number one thing that motivated my run? A necklace from my friend Mari that says "Run like a girl." I can't get a good picture. She sent it to me for my birthday (which is on Saturday!) and I absolutely love it!

Here's a link to the ETSY site if you wanna check it out!

I can't wait for the day when I can run 2 miles in 20 minutes. Seriously. But I'm proud of the progress I'm making.

Awesome job on your run. That guy in the sweat suit, seriously gross. I'm the same way when a song comes on, if it has a slow beat, then I run slow, if it's fast I find myself speeding up. I have complete faith that you will get to that 10 min/mile pace very, very soon.

Ew. Flying sweat is seriously gross. Good for you for sticking it out!
And don't worry, you'll get back to that 10 min/mile pace eventually. Consistency is Key!

Sorry but I totally LOLed at the sweaty dude in the plastic suit. WTF??? Hillarious. But not when you're trying to run right next to him. Awesome for you for a) hopping on the treadmill and b) sticking to it even when running beside the gross dude.

Congratulations on your run! Awesome job. I probably would've given up if I were next to a Sweaty McSweaterson unfortunately, the sweatiest person is usually yours truly. :(

That is such a cute necklace. What is the title of your post about? Was the sweaty man sweating violins?

I had not so great run today. I always run better when I run with someone. I'm considering taking your offer of getting up WAY early just to have a buddy. At least once a week? Let me know what you think.

DISNEYLAND ON SATURDAY! WOO! And your birthday :)
