An "easy" run!

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

My oldest daughter and I decided to run to the post office to mail some graduation announcements. It's 3.25 miles round trip. It has a few hills, but they aren't too bad. She is not in "running shape" as she puts it. Soccer season just ended so she is used to the sprinting.

We made it there and back in 32 minutes and that's with walking a few times!! I'll admit I thought it was pretty easy since it was pretty much a flat run. I wasn't struggling for breath and, in fact, I was more worried about my daughter. She breathes really loud! However, she said the same about me! emoticon

I guess this proved to myself that I am "running right." I still need to do some sprinting on my shorter runs, but I'm getting there!!

Sorry, but I have to give myself a emoticon

    That's a great time for an "easy" run. Nice to have a destination - a purpose for the activity beyond fitness.
