Today exactly is my 1 year running anniversary. On March 30th 2009 I started running again. I started as my best friend K kind of signed me up for a 5K run with a team of our work in June. I was complaining all the time that I needed to workout more often if I wanted to lose weight. I guess she was getting bored by it. No, just kidding.
But this was the best kick in the but I could get because I did start en after a while I also went back to the gym. Today I can’t imagine not working out anymore. Sure I don’t always want to go running or go to the gym but most of the times I love it and feel great afterwards.
My first run was lesson 1 of Start to run (looks like the C25K program that’s popular in the US) 5K.
What better way to celebrate this with a run which I did today.
I’m having a pedicure tonight. My feet are so dry that the skin bursts open from being so dry and it’s starting to bother me during my runs. I’ve had pedicures but stopped with that about a year ago but I’m noticing my feet really need this.
Thanks for all the sweet and fun comments on my Sunday run. It was so much fun to run that race.
Today I went for a 6K run. I was all set to go when the rain started pouring down while it was supposed to be dry at that time. I’ve waited for 15 minutes, by then it didn’t rain so much anymore so I went. Glad I did because after about 10 minutes it was dry. It wasn’t a very fast run but it was a good one.
Weather: 12 ˚C/53 degrees, cloudy, rain, not much wind.
Distance: 6K / 3.7 miles
Average time: 6:57 /km

What’s for dinner:
Yesterday: some pork meat, potatoes and mixed vegetables steamed in the microwave.
Today chicken marinated in garlic, olive oil and herbs, a salad and some rice.
