Yeah so I have done 5 miles. I've done 6 miles. All in my training for the Hot Chocolate 15K. But I haven't run the whole entire time. I'm still kind of figuring out my fitness level and quite honestly I might be allowing myself to walk when I don't need to. Whatever the case, my running mojo isn't quite where it was before I got sick. But yesterday I left work, drove to the park in town to start running so that I could beat sunset. The town I work in is much more hilly than the town I live in. So I was worried about running the whole 5. There's a 1 mile loop at the park that has some hills that look small, but 5 times around would be killer. So I went around it once, then headed to the main street which is more flat. I ran till I hit 2.5 and then turned around and ran back to the park doing another loop. I was pretty proud of myself!
The funny thing here is that the pace of 11:36 is the *same* pace as the last time I did 5 miles when I walked 1/4th of a mile in the middle. I find that amusing and disappointing.
Remember the phone drama I spoke of in my last post? We returned all the phones to Best Buy on Saturday and rolled back our contract. I'm not sure what we will do. I honestly want my husband to get on his own plan. Why? Because I don't think we'll be together for 2 more years. So separating the plans later would be more complicated. I guess that's only *if* I upgrade the 2 year contract. Otherwise, the no contract options that providers are doing these days would be much easier to separate.
So here I am back to my cracked Galaxy S4 and hating every minute. The phone is laggy and the cracked screen is annoying. Plus I think it's kind of faulty to touch as when I'm typing suddenly words that I had no intention of typing are flying on the screen. Oh well. I also took the insurance on all these phones off my Sprint plan cause let's be honest - that's a scam.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
