Not a Bad Start

Posted Thursday, May 3rd, 2012 at 06:25 PM

I completed my first month of running. I had a little bit of a setback in the last week because of the playoffs with Mark it Zero, then getting too sick to run, but I think it’s a good start. When I fist started, I was huffing after only running a single mile, but now I’m up to 2 miles without any problems. My only real problem is carving out the time to go on these runs now that they are pushing 20 minutes. That, and boredom while running!

I’ve been using both Strava and iMapMyRun–both great apps–to track my progress. Here’s the month of April on mapmyrun:

April running

I went on one mile-long trail run with steep grades, but I don’t think I’m ready for that yet. That run killed my calves! Caleb on his scooter has gone with me on several of my long runs, going ahead of me on his scooter than waiting. It’s nice to have company while running.

I hope to start trying out 3 mile runs next week.
