Running Week 2

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I did it! I loved it! I can't wait to go again. Next week the interval lengths are the same but I add a 6th set so the boys will be happy about that! Longer time to play at the school while I run on the track. I had 2 beautiful days of sunshine and just 1 rainy day this week. It's great that the school has a covered basketball court and the playground is like a big wooden fortess so there is plenty of cover - only the worst of storms should keep us inside - those would be the rare thunderstorms!
I rather like going in the rain - there are fewer people. Though when I do have an audience, like yesterday - there were several moms watching their sons' baseball practice, I comfort myself that they are wishing they had the motivation to run! They may actually think I'm crazy but in my head I believe they'd rather be running too...
My friend came with me yesteday and it was great - the time went by so much faster. It would be awesome if our schedules allowed us to go together more often!
My husband went with me on Wednesday - I couldn't convince him to run but he played ball with the boys while I did. Of course as I am finishing my third jogging interval he jogs up beside me and says - "Do one more lap - I'll go with you." At this point I'm already dying but after a bit of coercion I agree to jog a second lap and I made it . WOO HOO!
I love running!

    Isn't it crazy how something we never thought could be fun ... IS? Love to run :) People never believe me when I tell them how much fun it is.... until they try it themselves.
