Picking Back Up

24 06 2010

My running is picking back up and that makes me feel so much better about myself. I ran 2.76 miles today on the indoor track and it felt great. I started getting tired at a little over 2 miles but I pushed myself and finished 2.76. I am supposed to run 3 miles next week for 3 days and then that will be the graduation from Couch to 5k. Its crazy how 2 months ago I could barely run a minute and now I will be doing 3 miles. I am so proud of my accomplishment. I want to tell everyone I know, and if they get annoyed with me than they can go to hell. I am proud.

Now I just need to get comfortable enough with the distance where I can start working on my pace. I want to do GREAT on my run for the military. I don’t want to have to worry about my PT test while I am away. I also need to kick some more weight. I have been hovering in the 195s and its a little frustrating. But at least I am not gaining weight I guess.

On a completely unrelated note, my Mom and I went shopping and I got 2 t-shirts (SIZE MEDIUM!!!!) and a new pair of jeans (SIVE 14!!!!) from the GAP… all for $13!!!!! VICTORY!

I also sprayed some of Dolce and Gabbana’s La Lune 18 perfume on and I love it. When I have $65 to spare I am SO going to buy a bottle of this stuff.
