So, after a little reprisal from my follower, I realized I have not updated my blog in quite some time. This tends to happen when I start a new job. The job seems to take me over and I have no time for a couple of months. However, now, everything is where it should be and I have a little time at the end of my day!
Running update: it is AWESOME!! I have been getting faster every week. I have also been increasing my endurance. Last week I did a 5-miler in 42 minutes! This past Sunday, 7.61 miles in 1 hour 10 minutes. I am also dropping weight, which is always nice. I was once told that dropping weight makes you run faster, and running faster makes you drop weight. I love this paradox! The only problem is that I have had to buy 5 pairs of new pants because none of my old ones fit any longer. I got rid of them straight away, and have no plans to ever regret that!
I have a planned HM in January and a M in May. I think it will go well. The HM is in my hometown and is going to be rather hilly. The M is in Fort Collins and is primarily downhill. I am certain to get a PR, but I am hoping to get a BQ. I have to shave another minute off each mile of my endurance run, but it is possible.
OK, time to get a little more work done, then I am out of here!
