If you’re new to the blog, I should explain why I’m so excited to run three miles again. A few weeks ago, I was diagnosed with pneumonia and would hardly walk 50 feet without getting winded, which is the extreme opposite from what I was used to doing considering I was training for a half marathon this coming Sunday. I’m finally feeling good enough that I wanted to slowly run again, easing back into exercise.
Read about my first run with pneumonia here.
So last night was my second run with pneumonia. At this point, I don’t care about my speed, I just don’t want to hurt myself further. Normally I try to run as far as I can at a 9:30 pace, but I’m actually enjoying my change of pace (pun intended) and just relaxing and running. I think training for my half marathon (which am no longer running) pushed my body too far, so it’s nice to just have a relaxed run on the treadmill.
So yesterday, I alternated between walking 2 minutes, and running 1 mile at a 10:52 pace on a .5% incline, which was a really good pace for me. Eventually I hope to increase my running mileage while slowly decreasing my walking time.
On to more interesting things.
The Voice is so captivating!
I really think the final six deserve to win. I hope they are all successful in the future, because they are amazingly talented. I’m not sure how America decides who to vote for because I want them all to win! My husband and I argue over who we think is going to win. I think Cassadee Pope will win.
But I also want Terry McDermott and Nicholas David to win.
But Trevin Hunt has captured my heart.
I’m not surprised that Melanie Martinez got eliminated. Monday night’s performance wasn’t her greatest. I think she’ll be successful in the future, but she wasn’t singing the right songs to capture her voice.
What was your workout yesterday?
