Run, Forest!

this morning was Day 1, Week 1 of a running plan that rudy and i have put together! and, for those of you that know me and know me well, you'll be surprised to know that it went really well! i am by no means a runner of any sort. at best, i run down the street to catch busses (that eventually don't let me on anyway...). I've tried to take up running a few times - all unsuccessful. i just never believed that i was a 'runner' or even could be one.

today was definitely awesome tho; we're starting slow, because.. well, we have to :) but! it was extremely satisfying to make it thru the 30 mins of walking/running. we set our alarms for 6am, got out of bed 20 mins later, and then finally got out and started just after 630.

our plan involves intervals of walking and running. week 1 is:

5 reps of 5 mins walking, 1 min running/jogging.

our focus is to keep our heart rate steady and not to over exert ourselves. and, for someone who really despises running, i loved it! if you're interested in taking up running or jogging, i definitely recommend this plan!

its only 11 am and i already feel like i've accomplished so much! hazaw! ;)

Iribaby!!!! You started a blog, RAWK! And I'm your first commenter, yay me! I'll totally send you the eVite tonight (my computer has been unhooked all week, its killing me)...

Starting slow is the only way to go, because then you'll see real progress, and that feels awesome, and it motivates you to keep going. Are you or Rudy morning people? I'm a morning person, and it drives people nuts :) Cheers!

yay! my first comment! how exciting! :)

yes, i am a total morning person, but more like a 7am and after morning person... anything that starts with a 6 and ends with an AM doesn't typically jive with me... but.. this morning was so much fun, so i think it will be easier going forward.

i'll keep you posted :)
