First Long Run

Saturday was my 1st long run....long being a whopping 2.5 miles! However I am in Utah this week visiting family. So my run was on my old stomping grounds! Which also happens to be MUCH higher elevation. It was fine though the first half wasn't my favorite...the second half was much better. I was pretty sure I was GOING to die when I was done I was wheezing and panting. I survived it and had my headphones nice and loud so that I couldn't hear myself TRYING to breathe. My pace was almost 3 minutes faster. So it is true that I am getting a little bit faster :)

My tip of the day is-
Run with headphones nice and loud so you don't hear yourself ALMOST dying :)

I am excited for this week, lots more time playing with family seeing old friends and a few more training runs this week!

HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!
Make this a great week :)

I am so glad to see you're back to blogging (and running). I tried naked running for a hot minute. It sucked for me. I found my pace was slower than usual. Now, I'm back to full immersed (well 1 headphone while on the road) headphone bliss.

I continue to share your quinoa black bean salsa recipe with everyone I know.

Healthy weight loss calls for healthy weight loss strategies. This means that you need to stay away from unhealthy strategies such as taking quick weight loss diets. Healthy weight loss strategies that you should engage in are exercising and eating healthy diet. When exercising, you should engage in both cardio and muscle training exercises. Some of the cardio exercises you should engage in include swimming, walking, jogging, and biking. You can enroll in a gym or you can exercise at home. When it comes to dieting, you should take healthy foods such as fish, lean meat, fruits, vegetables, and whole cereals. Experts also recommend that you take plenty of water to increase the rate of metabolism.
