I am so thrilled to report to you that not only was I able to run OUTSIDE yesterday, but I increased my mileage up to 6! It had been a long time since I’d seen that number 🙂
Distance: 6.0 miles
Time: 1:01 (61 minutes)
I was happy to finally be over the 5 mile mark and hopefully over the next few weeks, I’ll get up to seeing the double digits.
This particular run was also exciting because we took a new path, going through parts of downtown that I really enjoy, including jogging past my favorite place to see a concert, the Louisville Palace! I didn’t bring my camera so I found this photo from Wikipedia 😉
There were a couple of times when I felt out of breath or that I needed a break, but I think it was just my lungs adjusting to the cooler air and not the humidified, stuffy inside gym air. We’ll see how I do the rest of the week!
The Anthem 5K is this Saturday 🙂
I know Mari and some other gals are running their first 5K’s soon, I wish you ladies much luck and most importantly HAVE FUN!
