Thanks, Joan Benoit Samuelson!


Hurrah! I logged my fastest mile today (beating my old time by a whopping 3 seconds), and I was congratulated by Joan Benoit Samuelson. Oh Nike+, I missed you and your motivational messages while you were gone!

I started week 4 of Couch 2 5k today. I was a little nervous. I’m quickly approaching the point at which I called it quits over the summer…the point where I just decided I was bored and didn’t feel like running anymore. I have goals in mind, though (the 5k on the morning of Erin’s wedding being the nearest), and I plan to buy some new running shoes over break next week (which will be expensive…hopefully encouraging me to actually use them…).

I am a little nervous about transferring from the treadmill to the pavement, though. We’ll see how it goes. No plans to do that anytime soon. Maybe early next month.

  1. Running outside feels so much better than the treadmill! Just think- a change of scenery! And if you don’t want to drop a bunch on new running shoes, you should probably just get the silver sparkly slip-ons you texted me 🙂

    • Yeah, I am excited for the change of scenery. I’m just worried that my endurance/speed will decrease. And methinks those sparkly slip-ons would increase the severity of my shin splints….
