Slooooooow 2 Miles

Today's workout was a "simple" slow 2 miler. I got up early and headed out in the cool, crisp morning for a 2 mile run at a pace of 11 minutes per mile. Easy peasy right? No! I felt so sluggish! It just goes to show you that there are days when you feel great and days when you don't regardless of what your workout is. You just have to push through and FINISH. Finishing is the key! I hope everyone else out there had those kick butt workout days instead of the day when you feel like your legs are lead and it's impossible to even put one foot in front of the other. Dramatic, yes, but that's how it felt today!

In any case, I'm glad I did it. I hit exactly 2 miles in 22 minutes, but that included stopping at some red lights, so not sure what my exact pace was. I did some stretching and that was it for the day. I have class for 10 hours today, so that's all I've got in me! It was 452 calories, so I'll take it!

Have a healthy day! Make sure you take the time to do one thing for yourself... you're worth it!


  1. Alissa -
    I just found your blog yesterday and I think its awesome! I have thought about running a marathon for years and I love hearing about your journey and how it started with P90x and how helpful that and Insanity has been. I also admire your ability to get out there in the elements. Great job and thanks for sharing!

  2. I agree with Nora! My husband and I are starting the P90X soon and my goal is for it to help me with my running! I'm a slow runner, but hope to get more endurance after the program! I did my first 5k last year...it's no marathon...but I'm working my way up :) Keep up the good work!

  3. Just found your blog and this was EXACTLY what I needed to read at this very momen. I am sitting here suited up and ready to attempt a 5 mile run and I am DRAGGING@!!!! Now I have the motivation -- I am going to do it for me!
