Day 14: Like coming home

The smell, warm and pungent, is almost overpowering. I breathe it in, deep, and as the oxygen winds through my veins, my pulse quickens and I remember. I remember anticipation and adrenaline. I remember focus and determination. I remember late nights and early mornings. I remember victory and loss. I remember joy and pain. I remember and I jump.

Pilates for the blind

I have been thinking since Sunday about what my plan was for exercising this week, besides running. (These are definitely new thoughts, so again, thank you BOWC.) I've been thinking about trying Pilates (I know - where have I been that I haven't tried pilates yet??).

Day 14

Today was a low key workout. I'm trying to let my body recover more since I'm having pain in my legs. So I just tried out a new yoga DVD after work.

Tomorrow--gym in the morning to do some cardio and strength training.

Day 13: How did that happen?

Somehow, with sore legs, tight calves, and sluggish gate, I managed to complete my three mile run in 26:38. How on EARTH did that happen!? You got me, but I felt like a rockstar when I checked my watch as I ran up to the entrance of Portland's Niketown. Rather than complain or over-analyze I will simply enjoy the fact that I somehow managed to run three miles that quickly.

Day 12: A day of rest

My first day of rest since the challenge began April 1 was Sunday. It was a lovely, lovely Easter Sunday in Portland. True to form it poured down rain all afternoon long.

Run, Springwater Trail

Ran 3 miles today with a running buddy! We ran 3 miles in under 27 min. We're still talking about increasing the distance we run during the week, but I think we're going to have to slow down the pace a bit.

Day 13

Week three of the Jackrabbit running class started today. And it was the first run where we had our run time equal our walk time. It was difficult, but not horrible. Thursday is what's going to be killer--it will be the first run where our run time is longer than our walk time. Not by much, granted, but still--the tide is turning.

i'm really drying to develop a cardio habit - it's my least favorite kind of exercise and the one i have the most excuses to get out of.

Day 11: The perfect day

Got up yesterday and met my friend Erin for a run into the Portland Farmer's Market. We ran across the Hawthorne Bridge...one of my favorites, and were treated to pretty clouds, patches of sunshine, and dragonboat teams on the Willamette River below.
