Fit For Speed. Class 1

The first official class was the past Thursday.  Yep, I'm still sore.   (And by the way, the fastest girl in our class ran the mile in 7:13.  Oh my)
Here are the results from my magic mile
5k speed: 10:14- My thoughts--do-able for one mile or so but 3.1 miles???
10k speed: 10:23 - i would have thoughts on that but I've only done about 6 miles in one setting and I remember that it was hard for me
15k speed 11:00.

On Thursday we did a 400, 800, 1200, 400, another 400 and then we ended with an "easy" 400 run. We had about 45 second breaks between each one.  I'm not really sure what the class goals were.  My goals were to keep up with everyone.  I did the first 400 in 2:15 and the second one I did in 2:04!  Woo hoo!! I did 1.75 miles in 15:38.  Not too shabby.  I was in pain on Friday.  Next time I will definitely use the roller the night of my run.

In Yoga news....  I received my 25 bracelet from SunStone!  Yay!!  I haven't lost a bit of weight but I have definitely gained muscle.  Even Matthew commented on how strong my arms look and my new abs :)

In Safety news.... I received my RoadID in the mail yesterday.  My long runs on Sundays are at least 60 minutes long which is a lot of running for me.  I do feel much better knowing that if something happens, matthew will be contacted and that whoever rescues me will know that I have life threatening allergies to certain medicines.

The Magic Mile

Tonight marked the start of a new RunOn class. This time I will be in the Fit for Speed class. I'm nervous about this class since I'm not fast at all. However, after doing some research I decided this would be the best class for me to start building up my endurance and mileage.
Tonight all of the runners got together for our magic mile to place us is in our groups. I ran that mile in 9:12. I know that to some that may seem slow but that was a new PR for me! Last time, about 7 weeks ago, I ran it in 10:23. I'll admit that I'm proud of myself. Now I'm looking forward to this speed class and possibly running a 5k in less than 30 minutes.
In other news, I saw my miracle doctor today. He's proud of my running and hot yoga but he's afraid I'm doing too much. In the next few months I'll be seeing another doctor and figure out my bone density and see how my muscles are doing. (a side effect of most of my medicines are a loss of bone density and muscles mass and since I'm already premenopausal, he definitely wants me to get it checked out).
Lastly, Im really bad about this blogging thing. I really want to track
my progress but I don't want to take the time to do it. There's another go for me to work on.
