Week 3, Workout 1 25-30 min run
Well the weather has been pretty awful lately. It’s been cold and raining the last couple of weeks. Today was no different. I decided to run on the treadmill this afternoon. I ran for a total of 25 minutes, covering 2.2 miles. At about 12:30, I walked for about a minute and a half, then I ran the rest of the way. I couldn’t get my Nike watch to create a lap, so times are estimated. The run was decent, would have been better if I would have ran outside. Oh well, maybe next time.
Week 3, Workout 2 25-30 min run
It finally stopped raining today. The weather has been so miserable, that I’d almost given up on running. When I got home from work, I took the two dogs for a walk. They did not do well. They’ve been cooped up inside for the last two days due to the weather, and today was like they had never been on a walk before. They had to stop and sniff everything. Crossing other people on the path was a pain; they barked and jumped and just overall misbehaved. By the time I finished the two mile walk, I was ready to give them up for adoption. I had convinced myself I would just run tomorrow.
Then I got home, and put on my running shoes. I needed to go for a run. I needed to burn off some of this frustration. So I ran. It was ah-mazing!!!! The weather felt great, refreshing. I ran 30 minutes, 2.54 miles. I could have just kept running. The weather calls for rain the next few days, but at least I had a good run today.
Week 3, Workout 3 3 mile run
Make that a 3.1 mile run!!! Kellie and I ran the ABB 5K this morning. The weather was cloudy, temperature about 70 degrees with 90% humidity. My goal was to run the entire way, but I ended up walking approximately 3 minutes. Regardless, I finished!
