Day 52 – 1/15

I was about to say “Sunday was a lazy day,” but then I saw that I somehow walked 6 miles. I guess walking Maia and a feverish bout of apartment cleaning are to thank for that.

Day 53- 1/16

Ever since I managed to complete my 5K training program this past May, it’s been a goal of mine to run a 10k. But because I got Maia, I couldn’t run on a treadmill anymore without feeling guilty–leaving her sad and alone so I can exercise without her when she wants to exercise all the time just seems too mean! So I had to start back up from 1.5 or 2 miles and learn how to run outside, because as any former treadmill runner will tell you, it’s a lot harder. (And running with a dog who wants to sniff everything and doesn’t understand that stopping in front of me results in tripping makes it much, much more complicated.)

I finally got back up to 3 miles a few weeks ago, and ran 3.5 a few days ago–my 10K goal was starting to look much more realistic. Today I made it my goal to run 4 miles, which would have been a (difficult) record for me. In keeping with my recent goal of being more positive, I decided that I WAS going to do it, that I just have to believe it.

And I ran FIVE miles!! If you’d asked me a year ago if I’d ever be able to run 5 miles, I probably would have laughed and said “in my dreams.” At that point, even a mile was incredibly exciting.

I thought it would take at least 6-10 more weeks for me to be able to run 6 miles (aka 10K), but who knows, maybe that’ll just be next weekend’s run.
