Well, I did get outside…

Holy cow did I struggle with my run this morning. my lungs apparently do not like chilly air at all. I had my inhaler with me thank goodness! Then as I am running my allergies kick up and my nose starts running, coughing begins and my sinus’ start draining. YUCK! I ended up going for a bit over 3K in 25 minutes doing  walk to run intervals, then I decided that I couldn’t take it anymore. Running outside is hard, on my lungs and allergies that is. I did find though that my legs and feet were far better off than they are after putting in my 5k on the treadmill. The time passed quite a bit faster, I thought I was throwing in the towel too soon but once my Nano voiced the time to me I realized it wasn’t just 10 minutes so I didn’t feel so bad. Easing into this is something that I am going to have to do, oh and take an allergy pill afterwards.

To sum it up here are my pros and cons of outdoor running:

  • Lungs hate cool air
  • Allergies and no tissue
  • Couldn’t breathe because of both of these things
  • Time passed quickly
  • Less pain
  • Scenery
I think that in time the cons will work themselves out. it will take some adjustment, maybe will have to stick with intervals for a while but I will get to the 5k in no time, I hope 🙂

After my grueling run I did my Pump workout, had breakfast, then started yard work. Next I went and purchased more plants for the yard, came back and started ripping out shrubs and HUGE, well rooted bushes (I planted then five years ago), showered, went to dinner with my in-laws came home and finished ripping out shrubs and bushes. I have everything now measured out and started placing the plants where I want them to be so I can get them in on Sunday. I just gave up on the yard for the night. It just got to dark and I am all sorts of sore. I think the tub is calling my name. And with only getting under 2 hours of sleep last night I am a bit worn out. Boy, do I wish some days had more hours in them!

Wedding tomorrow so I better go get cleaned up and get some sleep, have to get up early and get Emma ready for a game, squeeze in a run, Pump, then shower and get ready for the festivities. I have an awesome looking tank top/sports bra farmers sunburn, should look sexy with my one sleeved dress! HAHA!

  1. I didn’t want to say anything before to influence you but personally, I never felt the difference on my feet from running outdoors or indoors on a treadmill.

    You may have had difficulty with the run too because of the lack of sleep. When i do run outdoors (when it’s dark out) I would run until I didn’t feel like it or couldn’t any more and and also pushed myself further when running and not at a slowed walking pace. Be cautious on hills because you can get nasty shin splints. They can be a showstopper and I had to stop running in my very hilly neighborhood tor that reason.

    Take your time, you have what, 60- or 70-days until the race?

  2. Allergies are a pain!! My hubby has them and I feel so bad for him he looks totally miserable 😦 I attempted running outside once…never did it again! Yay you 🙂
