New tool to help with running/walking: audio books
Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Did not think of it on my own, but I love the idea. I have checked out an audio book from my local library & added it to my Blackberry. Look forward to starting it tomorrow. Should keep me from thinking about all the other things on my to do list... You know: laundry, dishes, change the cat litter, etc.
For starters I am only going to use it on the treadmill. I kind of zone out when in a good book, not sure that is a good idea being out in the real world if you know what I mean.
Last night I got in a good run, and it felt good all the way through. Did 30 minutes @ 4.6 mph, so 2.3 miles. Felt like I could have continued but I am cautious to not increase too much at once. In the near future I think I will try one longer run each week. Perhaps a 2 mi/2 mi/3 mi each week??? I need to get OUTSIDE. So far my best outside, without taking a break, is .5 miles. I really want to run the entire 2 mile fun run on Dec. 11th and I think that is a realistic goal...
