Found a new running venue.

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.

Notes on Friday’s run.

Make sure you wear underwear that will not start to slide down as you run. ‘Nuff said…
