Run For Your Life

Before about 10 am, the weather here is really nice. About 75 degrees and a nice breeze that makes a difference because it still feels cool. I’ve taken to walking/jogging every few days around that time in the last week or so. I know, one of my favorite phrases is “I don’t run unless I’m being chased”. I usually only get to a jog when I’m going a bit downhill and I can’t help but get my pace to a jog. My neighborhood lends itself to the activity really well because it has cut through pathways in between houses and a nice park to start my walk around. I also have quite a few small gradient hills to help the muscle resistance (or whatever it is hills do for ya). My walk/jog only lasts about 15 minutes but by the time I’m home, I’m drenched in sweat and my pulse rate is definitely higher so I know I’m getting in a work out. I have no idea the distance (although I’m sure I could figure it out using Google Maps or something) but each time I do this, I’m going to take a different route to see if I’m out longer or not. Hopefully, this will become a regular thing for the summer!

I’ve mapped it out on Google Maps (I love that app) so if you’d like to see my route, let me know and I’ll be more than happy to email you the link…if I know you. 😉
