1 Mile Run (Day 59 of 100)

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

I started the day with some lower body/core work using Fitness Blender. Later this morning, my daughter said she'd like to try running! So, we changed clothes, put on some tennis shoes, and headed out. We ran and walked and ran and walked... By the way, she's a much faster runner than I am! We were going at a pace of 8:45-9:45 when we ran! But, they were short runs. And... she decided she doesn't like running. emoticon

Anyway, we completed a mile in about 12:30 even with a lot of slow walking. Ha! My husband's work is crazy this week so I didn't get to run early this morning or tonight like I'd planned. I'm hoping to run tomorrow morning. If not, we will have to hit the gym! I've got to get my run in!

I didn't burn as many calories as planned, but I did more than planned yesterday. And, I've now tracked food 3 days in a row & am doing wonderful! Even after the power went out for several hours today so we went out for lunch. I chose a healthy sandwich at Subway & a glass of water. emoticon

    Very nice. My daughter is starting to run as well. She is pretty quick for a 12 year old.

    You can build on that. Running that first mile is not always easy or satisfying. Running three is amazing ... "I never thought I could do that!"

    It's awesome that your daughter is willing to try running with you at least once :) Even though she now realizes she doesn't like it lol.
