The breast cancer 3day helps you out by sending weekly guides for training. It's a 24 week process and since we are 24 weeks out from the event *gulp*, the training has begun!
Tuesday was the first day... 3 miles of moderate walking.
I made it 2.17 miles.
In my defense it was hot and I was bored. Chase (oh and I was pushing a big ole honkin stroller) doesn't talk back to me, ya know, being 18 months old and all, so it was pretty much me talking the entire time. If you don't know a lot about kids, talking to an 18 month old pretty much consists of identifying what they are grunting and pointing at... airplanes being my sons favorite. Not stimulating conversation at all.
Luckily my MIL was able to go today... we walked 2.11 miles. Oh did I mention it was supposed to be 3 miles of moderate walking again? Hmmmm, I am off to a rousing start!
Whatever, I give myself credit for just getting out there and trying. That really is the biggest battle.
I did learn 2 things.
1. I really really need to follow this training program or I might truly die on the walk
2. I really really want a jogging stroller!
