I have been so busy with *life* as a Nana I see I never updated my weekend run ...
I did a run last Saturday, 9km, was happy with the results as I beat my 5km time and ran the dreaded hills...that I had to walk up when I first arrived as I was feeling so bad.....within my running...like a beginner, like someone who was starting from scratch..once I got over whatever it was that was making me feel this way I have really felt like my old running self and enjoyed every second of pounding the pavement.
On Sunday I moved from my daughters house back to where my Mom, Dad, brother, sister in law and my youngest daughter live - here I have running partners which is great...
Yesterday late afternoon was our first run together...
Note my sister in law's *running shoes* ~ its like running flat footed, I think she is very brave as I love the protection I get from my running shoes which you cant get from this new craze.
I was very happy with myself yesterday....the route was a slight incline and then back down, no hills, doing this route I beat my PR for 5km ~ 30 mins...that's nearly 2 mins off my normal time with the hills route.
I'm the oldest ~ my daughter is 24, my sister in law is in her 30's and me ~ 48 and I beat them both...by quite a way...not that I was racing them, but my pace was much faster and I felt like I was dragging my body when trying to run with them, so went off ahead.
My sister in law is a marathon runner and is doing a triathlon this Saturday...
So I was impressed with myself, this old duck!!! :)
Ran 8.7 km
Food wise am still sticking to Clean Eating...
Yesterday I did share a slice of cheese cake with my daughter when I took her out for lunch with a blob of ice cream, that must have been my biggest * cheat * in months!!
