Today, I ran (walk/jog combo) around the neighborhood for today’s training.  It was 90 seconds running and then 2 minutes of brisk walking.  I think there were 6 sets of this with a 5 minute warm up and cool down.  Total time was about 30 minutes.  I was able to sneak out early after breakfast and it didn’t interfere with the rest of the day’s plans.

I covered 1.7 miles and included some incline.  It was only 36 degrees outside, but it wasn’t windy and the sun was shining.  I’m anxious to build up to 3 miles.  Next run is probably going to be on Tuesday.  I’m going to start week 3 of the training so I can be on schedule.  I think my body will allow the accelerated pace to get caught up.

Next up: mini workout and birthday manicure at the gym.  I’ll probably do a short cardio workout to burn off some of today’s treats.
