Aaaaaand… I’ve been running. I know, I know. Hell hath frozen over. I’m still a wee baby runner, practically an imposter at the slooooooow pace that I call running. I’m training for two road races on my calendar so far, and if I don’t die doing those, possibly more. If you’re a runner, too, or if you’re like me and you’re just wanting to get started, I’d love to have you on my street team on RunKeeper. We can cheer each other on in our baby steps.
I’m following the Couch to 5k program via the ZenLabs app on my iPhone. I’ve been at it for 7 weeks now. I’m actually only on week 6 though because I had to repeat week 3 when I was too much of a weenie to move on to week 4. Current averages: I run a 16 minute mile (yes, you can laugh. I can hack it.) I usually do about 2 miles about 4 times a week. Since a 5k is 3.1 miles, at this time I would finish in about 48 minutes. It’s a sad start, but I’m not on the couch anymore, so I’m calling it progress. My goal is to finish my first 5k in 40 minutes. I have until August 25th to train toward that goal.
And because I can never resist… here is a pic of my guys I took yesterday for Father’s Day. They are so handsome and growing so, so impossibly fast.
What have you been up to this summer? What are you shooting these days?
