Another great run!

Before tonight's run I was telling Jen that I couldn't expect to keep improving by a minute or so each run like I have been lately. So of course tonight I beat yesterdays by 1:04! I finally broke the 30 minute 5k mark (29:53)!

Before taking off, I had decided to pretend I was in a race so I immediately pushed myself and was quite winded within a minute of running. I didn't expect to keep it up the entire run. Honestly, I figured I'd start off too fast and end up walking before it was over. I hit the turn around in 15:17. The return trip was a struggle and I kept having to talk myself out of walking, but I'm glad I didn't!

The entire run, my feet and legs were feeling "normal" well, as normal as a runner's legs can feel when being pushed. I mean, I didn't have any foot pain issues. I'm thinking that the week off from the sickyness helped my feet recover from the damage the old shoes were doing. Who knows! I've finally started feeling like I'm not going to fall apart.

Oh any Connor's birthday party was great. His Godfather bought him a mickey airplane ride-on toy that he just loves.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
