I'm going to try to use this blog as more of a running log. I haven't been updating too often and I'm really trying to get out and run more. Now with the RunKeeper app on my phone, I'm able to see exactly how far and fast I'm running. I went for early runs both Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday, July 30:
12:32 average pace (minutes/mile)
Sunday, July 31:
13:23 avg. pace
On Sunday, I did the longer run that I thought was 3 miles. Apparently, it's not, but it's a start! Once I get a little more comfortable with that run, I'll increase the distance. I can only do these longer runs on the weekend, because I just don't have the time during the week. Not to mention the fact that it's been way too hot. Once it starts to cool off, I can go back to running the 1.3 miles around the lake after work. For now, I'm happy that I'm out there at all!!
Jack really enjoys going out in the jogging stroller. He's never put up a fuss, but lately he's been getting excited once he knows we're going out. I tell him we're going for a run and once he sees me getting out the stroller, he starts saying "run!". He gets so upset when I leave him inside to put the stroller out and get everything ready. I'm glad he enjoys going running because mama needs it to keep sane! And I'm hoping he'll want to run when he's older too. I want to have a healthy family! :)
