Yes... that is exactly what I ran yesterday: 8.7 miles in 1 hour and 32 minutes. How did I do it? Well, I read Shelley's blog over at: It's Just One Foot in Front of the Other daily and she splits her runs so she can get her miles in... I think she has run over 800 miles already this year (she ROCKS!).
Anyway, I decided to give it a try. I ran 5.5 with the baby and jogger in an hour and four minutes. It was bright and sunny, but the wind was fierce. I know I say it all of the time; but seriously, running up the hills with the jogger and the wind - I was STANDING still! I felt good on the run but was not stressing about my time. I know this because I stopped to check on the baby several times and did not stop LOLA - good sign!
When hubby got home, I decided to go out for another... whatever. I didn't want to pressure myself; I just wanted to run. I did 3.2 in 28 minutes. I felt WONDERFUL and fast. I did not intentionally run fast, but without the jogger... I just feel so much better.
And I got some good news. I talked to a professional last night and she said it was definitely okay to split my miles up during the day in order to get them in. I might just have to try this.
I hope everyone has a Terrific Tuesday!!!
P.S. The picture is of me in a Party Limo Van. My son had transportation day at his Preschool on Friday and LOVED the party limo van. He wanted to show you that I liked it too.
