Goal of doing 25 miles for being 25!

It was my birthday yesterday and I had such an amazing time this weekend! It was another weekend that I had to miss my Saturday morning run with Team Challenge but I made sure to run my 8 miles in order to stay on track with training.

Celebrating my bday weekend with a stop at Asian Art Museum in SF with one of my best friends "Wifey" Laura. This statue is called 3 heads 6 arms

I went 3 days without doing any type of workout other than partying so I was anxious for today's run. Ran around Campbell Community Track and did a little over 5 miles. Even my mentor Deanna said isn't it crazy that my first run of the week is the same distance of what was considered a long run a month or so ago? Its fun to see the progress of your body.

We got our second half of training schedule for our half marathon in July and I decided to challenge myself by doing the Intermediate Runner level even though I feel like a beginner. My goal is to do 3 runs a week and today I did 5 miles, the next I do 4, and this Saturday I do 9! Before you know it I'll be in double digits!

So while running around the track today my goal is to run 25 miles in one week for turning 25! I think that's an attainable goal. I mean if my body can handle a full marathon than that mileage won't matter but I want to make sure my body is okay with a half marathon first.

Can you believe that the weather is still crappy even tho its the end of May?? Well here's to productive week! Oh and looking forward to a 3 day weekend!! Countdown begin for Meorial Day weekend!
