The 10-day You Challenge is almost done! It has been an interesting challenge. I learned a lot about myself and it was good to share with others, too!
Today the challenge is two songs. I don’t really have a favorite song. Like books and movies, listening to music is a passion and so there are lots of different genres of music that I like and picking only two songs would be impossible. Therefore, I chose to pick two songs that I think will be my favorites this summer:
1. Sing by Ed Sheeran
Every time this song comes on the radio, I crank it up! Love it!
2. A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
This is one of those songs that makes me feel like I can do anything!
Speaking of doing anything, I started my official first day of half-marathon training yesterday and it was a great running day! I did an “easy” 3-mile run. Okay, first of all, saying “easy” and “3-mile run” in the same sentence still blows my mind. I can remember when 3 miles felt like the equivalent of a marathon! And even though I was supposed to do the run at an easy pace, I was feeling really good and ended up running my fastest 3 miles yet – 34:19, with 11:04 being my fastest mile. My speed is improving! I still feel like I run like a turtle, but I continue to improve. I also find myself using terms, like “PR’d” and pace, and I wear a watch now when I run to keep track of my pace times. My virtual running partner is teaching me about hill training and repeats. I honestly feel like a runner now. It’s so exciting!
The last day of the challenge will be to post a photo of myself. There’s a photo that I’m thinking of posting, but I’m a bit nervous. I would seriously be putting myself out there, and it’s very scary. (NO, I won’t be nude – LOL) Stay tuned; hopefully I won’t chicken out!
