another treat on the trail

Monday, June 09, 2008

I was on the internet too late last night as usual, and happened across a test for adult fitness. The government puts it out, just like the physical fitness tests we used to take in elementary school. Anyway, one portion calls for either a one mile walk or a 1.5 mile run. I decided to do the run, so headed to the flat (sunny!) track at our local park with my stopwatch. I ran hard and was very pleased with my time - 11 minutes, 57 seconds! For me, the slowest person on any of my high school teams so long ago, this was quite a feat.

Anyway, enough sunshine, so I headed for my shady trail for some walking and jogging to complete my workout. What did I see this time? After discovering that I can run much faster than I ever gave myself credit for?


God definitely has a sense of humor. :)

    I doubt I could do 1.5 in that short of time. Maybe 11 hours emoticon
