My temporary membership with the gym has expired, so I needed to find a spot nearby that would match my needs. I tried jogging around the neighborhood, but wasn’t very happy with that. Not sure why. Maybe I am too self-conscious? I dunno. I had no problems at the gym where I was surrounded by people in far better shape than I am.
In any case, I found a trail that goes around a playground a block from my house. I was able to let my son play while I jogged around it. It was really nice. The trail even has a bit of an incline, so I felt some challenge with that.
I have decided to redo week 3 of Couch 2 5K. I really didn’t feel as if I did as well on week 3 as I think that I should have. I did do pretty good today and felt GREAT after my run. I would really like to up my speed… I suppose that will come with practice. Work on the stamina first.
