  • Running: Make it work

    Sorry Tim Gunn.  But today, I *made it work* for me in my workout.  Not sewing.  I have a new running partner.  Nothing regular.  Totally part time, but she’s amazing. 

    She promised me a run and today we ran.  She is much, much faster than I…by minutes.  I, on average, run an 8:20 to 8:30 mile.  Today, panting in her footsteps I ran an 8:10.  A full TEN seconds faster than I’ve ever run!  How do people do that?  I couldn’t imagine keeping a pace that fast for miles and miles.  But people do it all the time, people much older than I, too. 

    After my very successful mile I, out of breath, continued on for another two miles bringing my run and time up to 3 miles in 24 minutes.  As much as I wanted to stop, I picked up my Puma clad feet and kept a steady pace all the way to the end.  A very rewarding day.  Polished off the run with an hour of Body Pump.  Upped my squat weight to 40lbs and really struggled, but it was a great feeling. 

    My day ended with me, my children and husband, in the garden weeding.  Another hour and a half spent pulling up nasty green weeds that try to suck the life out of my plants.  Losers.

    Silent cheerleaders, what have you been doing to stay busy?  Working out?  Vacation plans?   Races?  Do tell.

    For the moment, our entire household is on board, running daily – this makes it much easier for me.
