End of week 2!
This morning we were up and out by 7:30. It looks like that time is pretty much perfect for me. It’s not too hot. It’s not cold. Even with a 20 minute routine, I am still home and having breakfast by 8:15 at the latest. I suppose this will all change once I return to the work force. But until then, 7:30 is my time.
Seeing as it was a weekend, the wife was out with me this morning. Don’t get me wrong – I love my wife, and I really want her to be part of this, but damn, she is slow. We went up to the lake by the park again this morning, and if you compare my run time to Thursday, I was much slower today. Still slower, even after me leaving her in my dust after a 3rd way around the lake. That’s how slow she was. And don’t get me wrong, I am not running fast, but just faster than her. Honestly though, it’s all good. I ended up turning back towards the end and just continued to walk with her until we were done. I do believe though, that in future weekend routines, I will just stay at her side and do my regular routine solo. Better that way to avoid an argument of any sort.
Beyond that, the routine went great. I hardly felt winded. Sure, I was a bit of a heavy breather after the run portion, but it quickly went away. As I said above, my time was slower, so I really cannot judge any progress in that department. Also, I forgot to stop Endomondo once we got back to the car, so it logged our drive home as well, and I cannot delete that part. So, no, my top running speed was not 52 mph. Stats below.
