I head out for a run yesterday. Why? 1. Because it was warm for a fall day. Cool air is coming... & darkness earlier & earlier... so enjoying what I can get in now. 2. the Hubs stayed to play Corn Hole with coworkers. 3. I'm all caught up editing pictures so I felt like a freebird.
I ended up doing intervals of 2 min run/3 min walk... had more walking because I wanted to go further then normal. I've been in a 3.25 run lately. A run to a certain hill that I get to the top, turn around & come home... the usual 3.25. I busted through the barrier this time. Kept going. & I knew to do that, I needed some leg energy because the whole route is hill after hill after MOUNTAIN after hill...
It was a nice stretch of the legs... the walking works for me. With this low back issue, its hard to run.
Side note - I really need someone to record me & see if I'm heel striking. That would make a difference in my back.
But I get home & hit my watch at my usual cut off point (the part in my drive way where the black top & concrete meet... every time, this is my start/stop point)... looked down & saw my distance... yep... 4.44...
I laughed... there it is again...
I have to say too - I was pretty creative. The humidity was worse then I thought & I had on sleeve. Which when you sweat, sleeves are from the devil. So I didn't obviously have scissors on me or I would have cut the sleeves off... & my bare white, jello belly wasn't going to be seen with me taking off my shirt, so I tucked my sleeves under my sports bra... & it stayed the whole time... SUCCESS!!!
* Going further then usual
* Sports Bra MacGyver move
* Low Back felt like it had weights on it last part of my run home
