Week 3, Run 3

Well, the temperature dropped in Florida. It was 42 degrees this morning and I decided to run at the gym on the treadmill.
1.8 miles in 24 mins.
4 min walking warm up (Move on Up Curtis Mayfield)
8 min run (No Air duet version, Piece of Me Britney Spears – I forget what else I was listening to today…)
3 min walk
8 min run
2 min walking cool down

and then some weight stuff. I forgot about triceps today. I’ll have to do them tomorrow. They’ve been left out lately.

Week 3, run 2

I got to run with my daughter again today. That was great. But this time we did an evening run for the first time. I left work around 4:30pm because I knew I had a morning meeting tomorrow, and I didn’t want to skip a run or miss too much work.
We hit the park and ran a couple laps with this schedule:
Brisk five-minute warmup walk 5:24pm (Hot N Cold by Katy Perry & I Feel the Earth Move by Martika)
Jog 3/4 mile 5:30-5:38pm (I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry, Bon Jovi It’s My Life, Lady GaGa Just Dance)
Walk 1/2 mile 5:38-5:41pm (The rest of Lady GaGa Just Dance, Littlest Things by Lily Allen)
Jog 3/4 mile 5:41-5:50pm (Love Song live in Vegas by Sara B. and I don’t remember what else)
We started walking back to the car and found a fire hydrant nearby, so we fartleked back to the car.

Someone said, “I want her on my track team,” and pointed to my daughter. I said to 2 women who were jogging, “That’s my daughter.” and they said, “She’s beating you.”
This was our awesome view.

And it was about 68 degrees! About 2.3 miles.
Great run!

Week 3, run 1

I ran with my daughter today at 1pm:
Eight-minute warmup walk, then:
Run 5 minutes at her pace (to the 1/2 mile mark)
Walk 3 minutes
Run 5 minutes
Walk 3 minutes
Run 5 minutes (but I ran about 4 minutes, then walked 1 min, then tried to run another minute but at 40 seconds I go to the street light which marks the walk home. As we waited to cross the street I started feeling nauseous, so I guess that means I pushed it more than usual.)

Then we walked home.

2.72 miles in 44 minutes – but that includes the walking and waiting at street corners and stuff.

Neck pain is gone!
