I got a run in today! I had planned to go yesterday, but there were two sketchy guys in the parking area at the trail where I normally run, and I just didn‘t feel safe. Unfortunately, I didn‘t have time to drive somewhere else first and still get in my whole run. My in-laws kept the kids this afternoon and my husband went out with me today. #bfcr3 #goteam

TheDaysGoBy Sounds like you were being very smart - your safety should always come first! Glad you still got a run in 👍🏻 3mo
Emilymdxn That‘s a lot of v sensible decisions! Running is great to do but not at the expense of feeling safe, there‘s always another day and you managed to fit one in today! 3mo
wanderinglynn Very smart. Always go with your gut. 👍🏻 3mo

Increasing my distance little by little! I ran a new way, to include this section by the railroad tracks. Gravel is not fun to run on, but part is brick and part is a boardwalk style. #bfcr3 #goteam

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 3mo
cobwebmoth You're doing great! 3mo

It was a difficult run this afternoon with a humid 88 degrees outside! I‘m still following this Audible series to increase my distance. #bfcr3 #goteam

bromeliad Maybe but you still got 3 miles in!! That's great!! 3mo
wanderinglynn w00t! Way to go! 🙌🏻 3mo
cobwebmoth You're doing great! 3mo
KathyWheeler I went walking today and it was really warm; the saving grace was that a nice breeze would come along periodically. 3mo

I unfortunately haven't been reading as much as I would like lately, but I started this training series from Audible this evening. I'm not sure that a half marathon distance is attainable for me right now, but I'm willing to try a bit. #bfcr3 #goteam

britt_brooke You never know until you try! I love that you‘re giving it a shot. 🙌🏻 3mo
Megabooks Cool! I‘ve been doing more reading than exercising. 🤣 3mo
tjwill @Megabooks That is usually me too! 3mo

tjwill @britt_brooke Thanks for the encouragement! This one is a 12-week, 3x a week program. 3mo
Amandajoy I‘ve seen these on audible. How are they? Do you listen while you run? 3mo
tjwill @Amandajoy Yes, you listen while running. It has music at the pace you should be going, and the trainer talks through part of it too. She gives reminders to check your form, breathing, pace, etc. 3mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 You can do it! 3mo
tjwill @wanderinglynn Thanks! 😁 3mo

Not necessarily book related but the reason I haven't been posting much: my friend likes to do half marathons but hurt her knee so can't run. She asked me if I would walk it with her and I said yes. It's on Sunday! I've been spending all my time walking (with a friend so no audio books either). I'm starting to freak out a little.

I know this isn‘t book related, but I can‘t resist sharing. I DID IT! I finished the half marathon with a new personal best of 2hrs 7min.
Edited with the official time because my watch was off.

*wouldn‘t post with image*

1) I‘m running a half-marathon this weekend! I‘m so excited!
2) I haven‘t been able to stop talking or thinking about the half marathon all week. Oops. 😅
3) Ottawa, Ontario!
4) Sloth - they would be easier to take of!
5) 27 Celsius/ 80 Fahrenheit. But it‘s supposed to rain later.

So this is happening tomorrow...I suspect my afternoon/evening will consist of a big ole nap and maybe some reading if I feel like really exerting myself.
