Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

I am 45 years old today! I don’t feel like 45 but here I am 45 years old lady. My mom passed away when she was my age. So young, so fast. I am so bless and lucky to be happy, healthy, good life…so and so.

Today, it was 10th day running with Saranya. She ran 2 loops and walked 1 loop. Not bad!

Very busy day…

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

I am glad I did 7.68 miles in the morning. I had very busy day. Bought air tickets for Seattle, found out about hotels to stay in Las Vegas, places to visit at Phoenix. It was busy but fruitful days. 😀

So so day…

Not much going on today. I scratch few “things to do” list which I am happy about. There are few things to do tomorrow. I am planning to run tomorrow.

Today was Saranya’s 9th day running with me. She almost did non stop running for a mile. I think it is a progress on her part and I am so happy about it.

Crappy start but finished strong. :D

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

I planned this Sunday’s run since couple of days ago. I even told my husband to get me something sweet for my long run since I was almost out of my running gel. So, my morning start was struggle. I thought I might not able to do 12-13 miles! I feel like just go for 3-5 miles but thought if I do that then I will be quitter. I have been emphasizing this run to my husband so I kept going. It took me almost 4-5 miles get into the run. Still, today’s run was not like my previous ones which surprised me having a good strong feeling at the end. I drank lots of water and had few chocolate covered almond. At the end of the run, I start not liking the taste of chocolate covered almond. Lets see how long it will last. I tried to make 13 miles but ended up doing just 12.64 miles. I need to do little longer next time. Overall, I am proud that I did it!!!

Strong run today………….

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

I had a good strong today. I did not want to run but I though I might just do 3 miles. When I started, it was ok but got better and better when I ran. So I end running 7.41 miles. I would be happy if I made it 8 miles. I have to find my 8 miles marker.

Ran with Saranya 1mile. I can see a difference on her run. She also getting stronger and better. She ran 1 loop with out stopping now. Good for her. I am very proud of her. It was our 8th day running together! 😀

Too hot for morning run…

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

I ran 6.44 miles. After not running 3 days, running was energetic and easy but the hot weather made it little hard. It was hot 70F or so. I wonder how people who lives in hot country do running. I felt good after that run. Came home and did lots of cleaning! 😀

6 days of running with Saranya…

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

It was already 90F when we went for a mile run. This was the first day Saranya kept running with out stopping for 1 circle (2 circle=1 mile). Hopefully, she will kept going for a mile in the future.

My right leg felt good when I ran very slow. I think I can do short run, 3 miles tomorrow. 😀

New shoes….trail running..

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

I ran 9.58 miles on the trial yesterday. Now my side muscle above the ankle is hurting. I am sure it is from the new shoes. I don’t remember having this problem before but I did not run on the trail at that time. I think I should not run on the trial when I have new shoes. 😀

I am taking a rest today and tomorrow too or who knows.

5th day with Saranya..

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Saranya did 3 round around the park today which is 1 mile and half. Not bad. She was not happy but she did it. I hope in the future, she will thank me! 😀

New shoes….

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Today waking up was little hard. I felt like I closed my eyes and next thing I know it was 4am!!! I forced myself to get up. I had to go running today because I wanted to try my new shoes Hoka Bondi 4. 😀 I ran 5.76 miles. I have to find a route that makes 6 miles. Anyway, my new shoes was little tight especially on the right foot. I will give a week and see if I can get used to it. 😀
