Sore Muscles and a PR kind of day




Today was a great workout! Although I felt a little tight in my muscles. But I was able to keep running and hit a personal record today. I know I will be sore tomorrow. But sooo worth it.  I can't explain that feeling of hearing my phone's applause when I have completed my workout and hit a PR. Today's workout was like my usual runs on a trail. I love the feeling of running outside and being surrounded by nature and feeling the actual wind in your hair and not the AC at the gym. 99% of my workouts are trail running and I only go to the gym when I have to get a workout in and the weather is extremely uncomfortable. But today's conditions were ideal to allow me to hit the PR. My goal is to continue to shed minutes each week off of my mile time. MY goal is to run a 6:18 mile like I did when I was much much younger. I used to run the 1500 and that was one of my best times. So I am taking it a step further and hoping to hit that time with the additional 100 meters. I realize that in order to hit this goal I have to stay consistent and work hard each and every workout! Lets go!!

Motivational quote of the day!

#International Womens Day March 8th

Yesterday was International Womens Day and I can't help but feel proud to be a woman in 2016.
There are so many things to be proud of especially as a black woman.  In this day and age you can find yourself shying away from reaching your full potential just because of so many heavy expectations and limitations set by society in general in being a black woman. But there are so many strong and inspiring woman(Oprah, Michelle Obama, Beyonce, Shonda Rhimes and Kerry Washington to name a few) throughout history who have defied the odds and overcome obstacles to show that you can achieve your dreams. Today in 2016 even though are so many controversial issues surrounding my culture and are tied to being an African American I still can't help but feel blessed to have all of the opportunities I do in 2016. 100 years ago my ancestors had a different type of battle and I know I will not be doing anyone any favors by not reaching my full potential and achieving my dreams!

And the Training Continues March 3rd 2016

Today was a light day especially since I am trying to be more consistent with my running. Last week I took the whole week off because I have been preparing for a move. And oh how I wish I had slipped in at least 2 workouts that week. My stress level would have been way more manageable.
But we live and we learn and I definitely will NEVER go a week without running again.
My goal is to run a half marathon by the end of August but I wanna add 2 more tangible goals to the list.This will allow me to stay dedicated and I know I will feel more empowered after knocking out 2 more milestones.

So I am putting it in writing so I have something to go back to. They say if you write down a goal you are more likely to accomplish it.

Goals

1. Run Timed 5k by March 31st.

2. Run Timed 10k by June 20th.

Overall Goal is to Run Half Marathon by the end of August

I also have to mention that I am very eclectic and listen to all kinds of music when I run!! Just a warning before you see the playlist! And I listen to great music so check out some of the songs!
