(Even though I forgot to post about it to encourage anyone to join me) I signed up for Lori's annual Healthy Heart Weekend challenge a few weeks back. The goal is simply to get moving during the weekend of love. :)
I signed up to run 4 miles. In the past I've signed up for a 5K (3.1 mi.), so I thought I'd up it this year.
Well, I decided to get it done today to celebrate Valentine's Day and ended up running 5.0 miles!!!
I'm just a tad tickled about it.
It was my tempo run workout, so the middle mile was a speedy pace, and the rest was warm-up/cool-down paces. However, I think I had a hard time slowing up in the other 4 miles, so I still ended up with a great average pace.
Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day and may you find some activity to do this weekend that will help your heart be stronger for many more Valentines to come.
Note: As I'm posting this I realized the challenge is for Fri-Sat-Sun...so I'm early. I thought it started today...oops. :P
