Yesterday was a terrible day for a 5k, but I did not let that stop me from going and completing it! I took Molly with me thinking this would be nice, but because it was so wet she just got soaked and didn't have much motivation :( I really felt like I was dragging her a lot of the time but we still both finished :) My first race on April 19th I completed in 44:30, yesterdays race was 43:33! Basically 1 whole minute shaved off and I know I walked a lot. However, even due to all of my walking I really did try and run a little faster when I would run! I also did tell myself that since I could run in the crappy weather for a race that I need to do that regularly. I can't use it as an excuse to not run normally! I haven't completely written off today yet, but I am a little sore right now. I did go out and get my yard mowed and fertilized. Also did a little house cleaning and laundry.
I can't say I have been good about snacking today :( I have been watching some tv and that always causes me to want to snack. I have a salad planned for dinner :) I am quite excited about it!
I have thought that I need to re-do my measurements. It has been a while since my last check-up. I did get my new workout pants from www.skirtsports.com You really should check them out if you have never heard of them. I love the capris. While I was down in Colorado I did try on a couple of the skirts and over time I could see myself getting them as well. Right now I just felt way too self conscious and it felt like it sat low on my hips and as soon as I would have gone to do any physical activity I would have been pulling it up constantly. Thankfully my capris are not like that at all and they make me feel cute :)
Well I am back to searching for my 5k's in the area. Just wanted to fill you in on my progress. I know my next one is scheduled for sure on May 12th at 6pm. But if I can find one for Mother's Day weekend I may do one then as well! Just keeping my fingers crossed for some nicer weather to come this way!!!
