Catch Up Post!

I've been a little behind since my last run on Thursday so here's a quick catch up -

7/18/15 : (3 miles) Galloway marathon training group at 6:00am.  We did a little over a mile warm up run 45 run 30 walk.  Then we did the magic mile to see how fast we could run 1 mile.  They told us to be somewhat comfortable but also pushing yourself and I think I did a pretty good job of being in the middle.  I didn't set my watch so that I would go on pure feeling, not competition with myself.  I ended up doing my mile in 10:11 and I was SO happy with that!  I've been running with the 12:00-13:00 group and was worried I wouldn't even be able to run one mile straight without walking.  Ended up doing about 3 miles total with the group.

7/19/15 : (3.5 miles) For my Dad's birthday/Father's Day we went out kayaking near Amelia Island and it was SO FUN!!  My legs got burned to a crisp but the weather was perfect and we had the time of our lives.  Out of curiosity I wore my Garmin and we were out a little over 2 hours and went 3.5 miles.  Pretty cool!  My new favorite way to cross train :)

7/21/15 : (3.4 miles) Got my butt out of bed this morning and went for a solo run/walk by my house.  I did 45 on 30 off and really liked it.  I LOVE my Brooks Versatile Lite  Tank.  Trying to resist getting more but the temptation is killing me!  Sadly, my Garmin finally broke this run.  One of the button covers half came off on Saturday and this morning it completely came off.  I can technically press it still but I have to push so hard and then it sometimes gets stuck.  This baby lasted me over 4 years and the sentimental value is higher than I thought!  On to the next Garmin Forerunner....!
