He thinks I'm ready?!

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Today I took the kids to the library. The older girls needed to work on some school projects, and the little ones needed to practice timed testing. I left the hubby there to do the timing, while I headed out into the lovely neighborhood behind the library for my walk. I didn't want to go to far, so, thankfully my Runkeeper app kept me on task (and from getting lost). I did 1.77 miles in 26 minutes (15 minute pace). I was proud of my little speed walk, and improvement in decreased time. When sharing this news with my hubby, he smiled and told me that I'm definitely ready to start running. I was shocked! I told him no way, I'm not ready! He should at least give me until next week, before I start adding in a jog to my routine. I shouldn't be as chicken by then.

    Go for it when YOU are ready!!!

    Your speed is great. Once you get your mind wrapped around the idea, you'll make the first step on your first run--and won't you be proud!!!!!

    Best of success to you.

    I agree that you are ready to start running. The couch to 5k is a great program to use. You don't have to run far when you start out, just throw in a bit of jogging while you are walking. YOU CAN DO IT!

    As a runner myself, you ARE ready to do a little jogging. I started out doing a run/walk. I would try to run to a landmark, then walk.
    I like the Gallaway method and use it in some of my workouts.
    I also like Motiontraxx on I-Tunes as motivation. It is a free download and has great workouts and music.
