Todays Workout: 1.7 Miles Walk and Run

I got some new shoes for my workouts as my Nikes are pretty much on their last day. These Women's Mesh Running Sneakers are from Old Navy. I really wanted their hot pink ones but they were sold out in store. I purchased these last night because I was in need of new running shoes. These were very comfortable and light. More comfy than my Nikes even! The mesh top allowed air in and out, this kept my foot cool. I did size up because my normal size was too small in this shoe. My entire workout wardrobe basically consists of Old Navy gear. Being plus size, it can be hard to find good workout clothes that fit. I really like the Old Navy Active collection. I have two of their active tops, two pairs of compression capri leggings, and now a pair of their sneakers.

Todays running route was my usual route. I run through 2 cemeteries in my little town. They have hills and flat paved roads. 


 My workout music today consisted of the Foxy Shazam pandora station. 
This gets me pumped every time.

This top is part of the Old Navy Active collection. I purchased this back in April and it is still my favorite workout shirt!

Run breakdown:
The first mile(1 mile): 14minutes 24 seconds This includes a 3 minute break, I forgot to pause the timer. I ran this mile
The last .7 mile (point 7 mile): 13 minutes 37 seconds. I walked this last .7 mile. 

Last Mondays run was much better, but this was okay considering I haven't been out running since last week. I really need to be more consistent as I have my first 5k race next month. I didn't bring a water bottle, which I think really would have helped.

  1. Music and running go together like people and selfies. :) I haven't tried Old Navy shoes before, they look nice though.

  5. What earphones / headphones do you use while running? It's good that you have good weather there to have some exercise.

    1. I signed up for a 5k race next month, I thought I might as well get my butt in gear now so I don't collapse then!

    1. I'm just used to it I guess! There is no where else really to run in this area. My house is at the edge of one cemetery and across the street from another. It took me so long to get used to it.

  10. I'm glad that you found a pair of shoes in a pinch. I'm not sure that they would work for me though. I got too much junk in the trunk lol

  11. Great that you're keeping a record of your runs. I need to get back to recording my food and exercise, in the hope that it will help me get motivated

  12. Congratulations! That was a nice run. I usually get my exercise by going for long walks with my dog. But I'm not brave enough to run or walk through a cemetery.
