I still been trying to keep up with my running. Last week, the hero in blue had to take some classes for some re-certification, and the power lifting champion had to rest up for his competition last week. So I had no training partners. I basically, just walked and took it easy. I found out that I can walk at a speed of 4.5 mph. I was really excited about that because I used to run at that speed a few months ago. I did run Friday, I really felt good for that run. But Monday, I ran again and once again I was disappointed with myself. I feel like I should be running a lot faster at this point. I started running in Feb. at a 4.5 mph speed and now I can run at between a 5.0 mph and 5.3 mph. I think I just am afraid of going any faster. I still have trouble with my breathing and around mile 2 I start feeling tired. The hero in blue and I have been trying to do some of our running outside. I really struggle with that. I think it is because I try to keep up with him, and he can run at a 6.0 speed. I still am determined to be a runner. I love reading running blogs and seeing all the races. It looks challenging but also like a lot of fun. I would like to be comfortable at a 6.0 speed before I try to do a race. Today, is another run day so I will let you know how it goes!!
