Hi everyone! I did my graduation run Sunday afternoon, and it went pretty well -- I ran the 30 minutes plus a bit extra. Since then, I've moved to a new area to start working (I just got out of grad school) and this morning I went for my first post-graduation run. I usually run on the treadmill, but I thought that running outside would be a good way to explore my new neighborhood. I ran for 21 minutes, which felt pretty good considering that the last time I ran outside I struggled to do a week 4 run. My new goal will be to build up to 30 minutes running outside, and also to figure out how to fit my running schedule into my work schedule.
