I went jogging out at this trail the other day… so much better than the treadmill.
Might not be much to some of you, but I’m pretty sure that’s the fastest mile I’ve ran. I sweat my butt off!
Look at my daily mile counter on my page to the left… that’s right, I’ve officially reached 100 miles! :D
I found a pretty good route today, I just wish it was longer. I also found out today that the way I’ve been wearing my hair is killing it. I’ve been wrapping it up in a high bun on top of my head and it’s been causing my hear to break and snap towards the back of my neck, so yeah.. low ponytails from here on out.
Oh, anddd I hurt my right ankle somehow during.. but I have this nifty compression thing on it now and it’s helping.

If this girl is running across the United States barefoot and alone, I think we all can manage to get off our asses and go run a few miles.
I was finally able to go for a run. I didn’t go at my usual time (when the sun is going down), so it was really hot. I brought water with me to drink or pour on myself when I felt like I was overheating. I got side cramps and had to stop to walk two times for about a minute and a half each time. My pace and speed were slightly slower, but I haven’t ran in about a week, and it was in the middle of the day Florida weather.. so yeah. I’m not too worried about it. I’m just glad I finally got to go.
OH.. I also did 30 day shred before my run, and some yoga.

I’ve broken my record for furthest distance in a month, and it’s only the 17th :) My previous record was in January for 22 miles, and so far this month I’m up to 24.5 miles.
I think I’m going to stick around 3 miles for a little while and work on my pace and whatnot. Maybe try HIIT (high-intensity interval training). Idk.
OH btw.. I’ve discovered this app called Fitradio. It’s pretty awesome, I think I like it a little better than Pandora, at least while I’m running. It plays upbeat/fast music that gets me pumped.

I’ve been feeling off the past few days, probably due to hormones and whatever that comes with being a woman -____- I’ve felt all bloated and blah. Sorry for the TMI. But yeah, I’m glad I pushed myself to go run, so now I don’t feel as gross.
I wanted to bring a water bottle this time because I start getting really thirsty and tired towards the end of my runs… well of course I forgot, and was feeling dehydrated and nauseous at the end. Oh well, I ran through the pain, kept a pretty average pace, and got it done.
