2016 Running continues

Happy New Year everyone!

We stayed home last night and watched the ball drop in NYC from the comfort of our couch 🙂  One of our friends in the neighborhood has an annual New Year’s Day brunch which we went to today. I took a veggie platter and did my best to stay away from the cakes and candies but I went a little off course having a few mimosas.

I planned to run today but didn’t get up and out this morning so I had to do it after brunch. I was a little worried my stomach would act up but thankfully I didn’t have any issues.

Week 8, Day 1 calls for 4 repetitions of 10 min running, followed by 2 min walking but I since I haven’t run more than 5 mins at a time I knew I’d have to modify it. I opted for 5 reps of 8 min running & 2 min walking. I did pretty good on the first three run segments but had to take walk breaks in the last two…that’s ok, I’m making progress!

I almost forgot to say how wonderful it was to run without humidity again! It’s in the low 50’s today and the dew point is down around 39…woohoo!!!

I plan to spend the rest of the day in my sewing room finishing up a couple of projects.

  1. Excellent running Sharon! Looks like your training plan is going well. Good to hear that the humidity wasn’t so bad either – that’s some crazy climate you’re living in!
    Happy New Year! 🙂
