So my two running goals for this summer season were:
1. Run a 5k in approx 30 minutes which is a 10:00/mile pace. Tonight I ran a 3 mile loop in exactly 30 minutes. So goal #1 accomplished.
2. Complete the Columbus 10k (6.2 miles) without walking. Tuesday night I ran 7 miles in approximately a 10:30/mile pace. Goal #2 accomplished.
New goals? Not sure yet! Maybe new goal will be to run, no walking, the half marathon with Noah in October. I know that I said I had no desire to ever run that far, but….my mileage just keeps increasing so I need to keep challenging myself.
Question is, how did I manage to GAIN 2 pounds when I ran 13 miles last week? That’s 1430 calories just burned by running. That’s almost 1/2 a pound by itself and I KNOW I didn’t eat that poorly….time for a new scale?
