Today has been such a looong day! I woke up earlier than normal this morning so that I could make it to the good ol’ gyno. It’s so nice to have the doctors office literally like 500 feet from my apartment. It made me really happy when my doctor noticed all of the weight I had lost compared to my number from last year. It just has felt good to be able to maintain my new habits.
Running Against the Wind
April 10, 2009 by Stephanie
Before my appointment I went out for a run. I’ve slowly been transitioning my runs from the treadmill to all outdoor runs since it now warming up. I ran for 40 minutes out around the neighborhood, which calculated into 4.04 miles total. It was an excellent run! Probably the best run I’ve ever had outside, granted I haven’ t had many of those, but even so I still enjoyed it. It was a nice day outside, almost 50 degrees and the wind was blowing pretty hard, but I managed to push against it and keep on going. I was hoping when I turned around the wind would push me, but somehow it still seemed against me. Today’s run marks the longest run I’ve had outside to date, minus the 10K Race. I felt like I went on an adventure, I kind of just went out there and ran and it was nice to explore the surroundings. There were a few people out walking their dogs and I even saw a really cute house that I would love to live in.
Can’t wait to be a hardcore runner where I can run outside even in 20 degree weather. I strive to be that someday.
Glad to be home from work, I have tomorrow off as a paid holiday. I never liked Good Friday as much as I do now.
