Today I'm one day shy of having five months of running experience.
I was scheduled to run one mile this morning. I am pleased to report that I ran the mile in sixteen minutes. That is slow for many runners but excellent for me, a new runner with asthma. With no previous history of regular exercise I am happy with my progress.
The temperature was 62 degrees and the wind was blowing at 14 mph. The wind made some parts of the run difficult. I took no walk breaks as I was timing how long it would take me to run one mile. I'm going to time myself every three weeks when I'm scheduled for a mileage decrease.
We have an recumbent exercise bike now and I used it for 45 minutes Sunday night. I plan to use it on my non running days. Above is a photo of our 5 y/o working out on it.
I'm signing our 10 y/o and I up for our third 5K today. The organizer is having a special today: $10 off for each registration in honor of the 10th annual race. The race is next month. We're looking forward to it. This will be our last race for a few months as the weather is going to get very ghetto here for a few months. There is no way I'm running a race here in the summertime.
