5 Mile Run

I really wanted to up my workout yesterday because of Sunday's light activity. I decided to do 5 miles at the gym. It is the first time I've done 5 non-stop miles since before I got pregnant with Colette. I wasn't quite sure how to pace myself for it so I started out a little slower on the first two miles. My overall time was 42 minutes 22 seconds. So an average time of 8 minutes 44 seconds per mile. I burned a total of 617 calories during my run.

I really do enjoy running but like a lot of people I find myself getting bored (especially during longer runs). If you have a similar problem, maybe this will help keep you in the zone:

It's another hot and beautiful day here. The pool is calling my name! Stay cool everybody!
