Day 11 Run Streak: Flying Miles

Today was a lazy day. The next two Sunday's I have to work, so I wanted to take advantage of just sleeping in and laying around. I have off on Tuesday again, but then go to Wednesday of next week and then no days off until Christmas. Oh Retail Joy, but I can't complain too much, normally we go for like 12 days without a day off, so I am happy with the scheduling they gave us this year.

But it means on those days off, I am taking advantage of being super lazy. It was a cold and misty day anyway, so I didn't feel too bad about not doing anything. I kept our Christmas lights on all day and stayed in my PJ's, even to the grocery store.

Yup and I didn't put on a bra either, YOLO!

I tried to take a nap, but that wasn't happening so I got my run in. I got in 3 miles. And believe it, the first miles was 10:38!! 10:38!!!!

I haven't ran that fast since May, when I went and ran with my boss for a 5k! I was really pushing myself. My lungs felt like they would exploded and I walked for a second and then sprinted that bad boy. I am so glad I pushed myself. I wanted to see how fast I could go and get under. It felt great, but mile 2 I definitely burnt myself out. Which is okay, I am looking for progress not perfection!

I got 3 miles in for Day 11. I am for sure stronger with it this year than last year and can feel a huge difference. I am getting back into the running method again and I love it.

Continuing the rest of my lazy Sunday with a shower, chili in the crock pot, some sangria and laundry!

Happy Sunday!
