And So Begins My Running Experiment

My wife used to run cross country so I thought to myself she’ll make the perfect running partner/coach.

Last Saturday we went out and covered about three miles, mostly walking, with some short stints of slow jogs. We’d pick a park bench and leisurely jog to it never really breaking a sweat.

Tonight was different. We’re house sitting for her parents and I suppose running her old routes added a bit of vigor to the pace. I’m not complaining, this is what I signed up for. I want to become a runner so I pushed. It felt good-I got sweaty.

I didn’t have my Polar heart rate monitor or my Nike+ iPod but I believe we covered about two and a half miles with a little less than fifty percent running. It felt sort of like intervals because as soon as my heart rate dropped we picked up the pace again. Fun times.

I’ll keep you all posted with my progress. I’m going to stick with this until it’s fun.
