Today’s post is brought to you by: FEEL THE BURN !!!
It was another beautiful day in the neighborhood. And I did not run on Sunday so I thought that I would add a run today to make up for missing a day in the routine.
Since I started on Friday last week, runs are run on Wednesday, Friday’s and Sunday’s. That means I got 2 days in on week 1. I am still waiting for my shoes to get here, which should be tomorrow (crosses fingers).
I took a new route today from home, running West on Ste Catherine’s to Atwater and up to De Maisonneuve running West into Westmount, all the way past St. Leon’s Church. Since this weeks pod cast is 8 sets of 60 second runs with 90 second walking, I run all the way out for 6 sets and turn around and head towards home.
I did better today, I made 6 of the 8 sets of runs and walked the rest of the way. It was a hard run because my legs burn like fire. I guess that will pass in time. I didn’t take a bottle of water with me, I found that I didn’t need it, because I hydrated before leaving the apartment.
This means I start the week 2 pod cast on Wednesday.
Stay tuned, more to come …
