Sunday Run, Short and Sweet

Hurray hurray, we ran today!

We are back in the hilliest of neighborhoods!  Running here is fun but hard.  Today we did a shortish 4.55 km around a well-loved route.  It was cool but sunny and very damp.  The damp makes me feel COLD till I have been running for a few minutes.

We did 10/1 run/walk intervals today.  The walk break normally does make me feel like I can kick up the running speed a bit... but today the lower calf muscle in my right leg was cramping almost from the beginning.  I think it did slow me down but I tried to ignore it causes I was just so happy to be RUNNING!

W3 R35 @10/1 W4
stretch 5 minutes

When we came inside I made us the most delicious smoothies... banana, unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze, ground flax seeds and cinnamon.  Mmmmmm. 

So the week is off to a great start!


  1. Yah for running and that smoothie sure does sound good!!

  2. Way to go, Elle! :) I hope you have a fantastic week!!

  3. Nice run, Elle!

    I have a question for you. As you know, I have been doing run-walk intervals by miles. How do you determine how to do them by time? Is there a time I should start with to see how it goes?

    Thanks! You are always an inspiration to me and you get me thinking! :)

  4. Awesome run and that smoothie sounds delicious!

  5. Damp definitely does add to the cold. I get warmer, and then some parts of me cool back down if I run for more than 20mins.

    The smoothie sounds yum :)


Love it when you leave me a comment!
