July 26th – I went for a mile run. I was feeling a tab bloated. I took it easy and managed to still run the whole mile at least. It was a slow run though, about 9 minutes.
July 30th – I went for another run. I ran for about 10.5 minutes. I forget where I ran. I just like to run sometimes, and I don’t bother thinking about how far I’ve run. It might have been just over a mile. Without stop lights, I covered the distance in 9 minutes 47 seconds.
August 4th – I went for another run – a little over a mile I think. My time was 9 minutes 22 seconds.
August 6th – I decided this year to do a walk/run down Yonge Street for my birthday. I invited people to come along. We started at Yonge and Finch and ended at Yonge and Bloor. Then I had a birthday dinner at the Korean Grill House – an all-you-can-eat cook-it-yourself BBQ. I hadn’t been sleeping well, and I only slept 5.5 hours that day so I ended up not running as much as I would have liked. Nathan and I still make good time though. We covered 12.6 km in 2.5 hours walking most of it. If we ran I’m sure it would have been under 2 hours. The BBQ was yummy. I will have to go again some time when I’m not distracted by conversations and can cook my food properly.
August 9th – I went to the do jang and the gym. I did pretty much my same gym routine.
August 14th – I went for a 1.5 mile run. My time was 13 minutes 33 seconds. It was a decent run. I’m still not at the pace I would like to be at, but I haven’t had the time to focus on running and training this year. Later though, I ended up running 1 km to meet up with someone, then I ran back afterwards. Breaking up the running is a good thing to do sometimes.
August 15th – I went to the do jang and then the gym. I was feeling stressed, so the do jang felt good. Although I pulled something in my back. It’s still bothering me, so I’m thinking of not doing the do jang again until I feel sure I’m better. Maybe a run and some weight training, but that’s about it.
