Outdoor Running

First off, thanks for all the feedback on my post yesterday. I literally LOL'd at all of the comments. I enjoyed reading all about your pet peeves with your boyfriends/fianc├ęs/husbands. They're so lucky to have great women like us in their lives...am I right? HAHA.

But back to running! I'm so blessed to have moved where we did! The neighborhood is awesome! Slight hills, but nothing crazy and you can do loops in so many different ways. That's going to be good for me since I tend to get bored easily. So, at work I mapped out my first venture. Huge shout out to the hack who got Google Maps to link with a Pedometer, its the BEST way to plan a new run on roads you're not familiar with. I set myself up for 2.5 miles and was really ready to get going when I got home.

Immediately I laced up and hit the road. Here's what I got done:
I use the Nike Running app...

Completely obsessed with my heart rate monitor.

SO PROUD OF MYSELF and unexpected. I thought I was only doing 2.5 and actually fit in 2.75. Not bad for my 2nd run outside of the year.

I did have a little distraction from the cutest corgi ever. He was just wandering around on the sidewalk...had to say hello.

In other exciting news, I got a stand up desk at work!! I still have the option to sit, but I hope to stand most of the day. I caught spring fever big time from Tone It Up!

What's the longest run you've done this spring? Any people just getting back into it like me?

  1. Great job! I'm actually on a running hiatus right now, but this makes me miss it. I'm sure I'll really miss it once the weather gets nicer near me!
