Advice for Outdoor Running (an add-on blog)

I seriously need to remember to blow out my nose really well before I head out for a run. I need to be able to start breathing through my nose while I run. I got another mouthful of bugs this morning. Not pleasant or delicious. Maybe I could think of a convenient way to carry tissues with me (my jogging pants do not have pockets).

I also wanted to thank bgirl875. She recommended running first thing in the morning. I’ve been able to do that twice now and really enjoyed those particular runs. It is also a really great way to start the day.

2 Steps Back

I did the Week 6 Day 1 workout again. Definitely better than the last time. Still not as good as I know I was before I got sick. Oh well. I will work through this too. I actually considered doing this same workout again on Monday, just to try to get myself back up to par before continuing on. That will be the last time I redo this one.

After my run today, I then proceeded to do a 5 mile hike up a mountain. I used to do this hike on a weekly basis until winter set in. I really missed it. I came to realize that while I am getter better at running, there is no way in Hades that I can run up that mountain, yet. People are running up that mountain all the time… I always suspected they were nuts before, now I am certain they are… My goal after running a 5K will be to be able to run up and down that damned mountain.

Tomorrow, I will start posting about my cardio workouts.

Huh. I am too tired to think of anything more to write.
