Fastest Mile Yet

On my training schedule today was a 2 mile run. I decided to try to push myself little harder then usual. I finished my 2 miles in 20 minutes and 14 seconds!!!!! That is just about a 10 minute mile :)
I really enjoyed my run today.  
The sun was shinning and the weather was perfect :) I was so happy to feel my sweat dripping down my face. I know that's totally nasty. However every time I sweat I feel proud knowing that I pushed my body that hard and I am sweating from my hard work.  My 5 year old hugged me after my run and said ewwww gross Mom you're wet only boys sweat......I was quick to tell her nope girls sweat too it mean we worked hard!!!
It was such a pretty day I snapped a few pictures along the way. All of my complaining yesterday must have been worth it!!!! The sun was shining brightly today :)

I am headed to Whole Foods. 
I have never been there before I am excited to see what new foods I can find :)

Good for you Lindsay! You're going to kick some running butt soon during RRR!!! I LOVE Whole Foods. I wish I could shop there exclusively. . . or just grow my own lovely produce. :)

karen said...

Way to go, Lindsay!!! I had to laugh at your daughter's reaction to the sweat. I would always tell my mom that I refused to sweat ... but I would, at time, "glisten like a pig" :)

It is National running day! So what a great day to have such a record. I wish we had a whole foods market! I live in an area where it is evenhard to get quinoa.

Amanda said...

Congrats on the run!! I tried pushing myself on the treadmill yesterday too! My legs were so tired afterwards!

Jen said...

Awesome! I cannot run a 10 min mile to save myself...not even one! Mine is at about 11 comfortably!
You need to come check out my giveaway. There is a "Life is Good" baseball cap with running shoes...perfect for you!

Skye said...

Wow! What an awesome run! And I know exactly what you mean about sweating. As nasty as it is, if I don't sweat when I work out, then I don't feel like I did enough. So I love it when I'm dripping! lol Also, I'm so happy to see Mother Nature rewarded you for all of your hard work! ( :
