Update: Running with Nature
Happy Easter weekend, everyone. Aren’t these bunnies adorable? Cu-ute!
I’ve been training mostly indoors for my half marathon. Mainly because it’s easier and I don’t have proper outdoor gear (and I don’t want to go all out and buy them so close to spring!).
Training on the treadmill is much easier than running outside, IMHO. I can set the incline (1%) and my speed (4.7mph) and I’m off. Forty-five minutes later, I get a summary of my workout. Easy peasy.
However, with the weather much nicer, it is now time to start training outdoors more. I did a 5km run with BF 2 weeks ago, and haven’t really run outside since. Until this morning!
This morning, I got up bright an early and was at the gym at 6:00 am to meet up with my running buddy. The trail we too was about 9km, and it took me 1 hour and 10 minutes. It was hard, and my calves felt really tired afterwards, but I was super proud of myself!
I also ran without headphones and listened to the “world” wake up around me. We ran through a park, and I ran into all these birds 🙂 !
