Now that the weather is nicer, I have started to run outside again. I have not consistently run outside since the fall. Let me tell you how humbling it is for me. I can’t even get through a mile without stopping to catch my breath right now. It’s actually really frustrating, because I know I can do better. At the end of last fall I was running more efficiently and had more endurance. The first mile is always killer. I need to not let it get me down and to remind myself that the second mile is much easier. I know I will get there again and the only way to get there is to get outside and run! NO MORE TREADMILLS!
Here is my work out for today. I really liked the WOD my trainer made me do today.

Row calories (2x your age….for me 72 calories. FYI it took forever!)
Have a happy mid-week tomorrow!
