What a great day! It was beautiful out. I got some gardening done and then Jim suggested we get ourselves in gear and go for our run. We both completed two 15-minute run segments and didn't have any problems. We even ran some hills -- on purpose!
This next week is supposed to be 4 days of 20run/5walk/20run/5walk....and the next week is 25run/5walk. We're toying with going straight to the 25/5 and doing it two weeks in a row. The reasoning? It seems harder to start up after a 5-minute walk break than just continuing to run. I feel like we could have gone farther today on that first 15 minute run.....but getting moving again was a bit of a struggle.
I think I might do a 5K fun run next weekend in Brighton. A friend from Runnerslounge.com mentioned the Shamrock Festival Fun Run and I think it might be a good thing to try. I've never done any type of race before and going to an event like this might help me feel more like a REAL runner. Okay, who am I kidding?.....maybe I just want to go to the Brighton farmer's market afterwards and indulge myself buying perennials. Hey, now THERE'S an idea. If I run the whole time, I can treat myself to some exotic plant! If I don't, I'll just have to turn around and go home. Sounds fair.
