Feeling lighter.

Today Hubby works until 7 and on days like this I end up running solo.  I refuse to go to the trails by myself so I tried the pavement again.  I spent about 10 minutes looking for my oh-so-not patiently waiting puppy until I realized we left it in Hubby's car.  So I had to trick her to going outside again :( 

However, I felt a little lighter on my run without her needed to sway one way or another and stop and sniff and snuff all the dogs who had previously been on the square of grass!  

Since I had been running (run/walk/jog) about 3 miles each time on the trails I decided I needed to suck it up and do it on the road too to get ready for the 5k I want to do October 1st.  This means I do one of my planned out laps twice. 

My reach my first mile and I knew by the time that I had just beat my mile record at 10:54!  Yay me! So I take a little walk break and start running again.  I do that a few times before I reach the 2.5 mile mark and realize that the rate I'm going I'm even going to beat my 5k record!  And I did! At 38:02!  

I had to pass my house a little bit to make it to the 3.1 miles so I just went around the loop and back to the house.  I'm very proud of myself, if you can't tell from this very boasting post! :)
