Rome Wasn't Built in a Day ...

Neither is a running base.

Today was Rebuild Base Run #1.  
I sneakily set out for a 2-mile run without the dogs. 
I needed a run by myself. And didn't want to be dragged around by Paddy Wag.  
It's MY run! 

 *sing: Man on the run... man on the run ..... 

I actually took this picture on my route back. 

Jeff Galloway said it best:
"When I finish a run, every part of me is smiling."  
So true. So true.
I was listening to a podcast by Marathon Training Academy.
Good program. 
Check it out on iTunes. 

 On my way back.
The sun was shining behind my back.
Look at those sausage legs.

 I'm pretty happy I got the scheduled 2 miles in.
Splits: 10:47, 12:13.
The first mile was wonderful. My legs were fresh. 
At about 1.5 mile, I kinda felt a little sumthing sumthing
So I did a run/walk thing after that. 

 The boyfriend gave me an "off" day today.
So I don't have to worry about his supper tonight.
I ended up hacking into a pineapple, a cantaloupe and a plum. 
And topped that off with some Greek yogurt and honey. 
One satisfied girl! 

How was your run today?
