5 miles!

This past December, I was really sick and started with a funky breathing pattern and I have no idea where it came from. I'm not exactly sure what it is but I'm attributing it to any of these three things:
1.) Anxiety
2.) Asthma
3.) My birth control pills

So I said that to say, the breathing thing has been holding me back in my running, I know it has. I know I am capable of doing so much more than I've been doing because of the breathing thing. This past week, I had a BEAUTIFUL week...breathing problems were all gone! Wow! I have no idea why...and I made an appointment a few weeks back to see my GP to determine what is going on....anyway.....

On Thursday, I slowed down my pace just a little and I ran THREE MILES without stopping! I've NEVER been able to do that before! I was soooooooooooo excited you just don't even understand! I'm so glad I had a break from the breathing thing because it really boosted my confidence to be able to run those three without stopping!

Then Saturday, I met up with my running group again and it was a 5 mile run. I ran the ENTIRE thing and only stopped at water stations (because it was humid outside) but I felt GREAT and could have kept on going when we were finished!!!!!!! It was such an amazing feeling!

So now hopefully, I'll figure out what is causing all of this breathing mess and get it FIXED cause I want to run like this all the time!!! lol!
