3 Miles, So Sloooowww
Got today's workout in. At night, when I'm usually out of gas. At the gym, which I do not prefer. The assignment was a 3 mile walk. Technically running isn't required for a couple more weeks, but I sprinkled in several jogging intervals. This is a pretty big deal for me, because of late I have only run brief downhill stints, on rare occasion, over the last couple of years. Three miles in 52 minutes is sloooow as dirt, especially when running is included, and yet for me it was an achievement. I'm both embarrassed and proud, which is a little weird. However, I am going to look at it as a starting point, the before picture, the benchmark from which I shall only improve as I work my way through this training program.
