Later on Saturday afternoon (after nap time, of course) the little one wanted to play outside, as usual. So the hubby and I decided to take her for a bike ride. She's not old enough to ride on her own, but my husband's bike has a kid's seat on it. So, we took a nice 2 mile bike ride around the neighborhood. It's been quite a while since I rode a bike and let me tell you....that seat did not feel good on my boo-tay.
Sunday night I finally got back to my Couch to 5K training. It was already getting dark out, so I opted for the treadmill, instead of the open road. And let me just say...I love a treadmill. While I do enjoy the fresh air and scenery of the open road....a treadmill lets me read, or watch TV/Netflix. And...our treadmill is actually in our garage, so all I have to do is hit the garage door button and I get some fresh air to go with it. During my walk/run on Sunday, I took the time to watch some General Hospital on my iPad. (The pic is a little blurry since I was walking when I took it. There's nothing like killing two birds with one stone.
I didn't go as far as I had before when I did the trek around the neighborhood, but I did find it much easier to do this time around. I was able to jog during all of the times I was supposed to, and I actually felt like I wanted to keep going when I was done. (I think it helped that I didn't eat dinner just before walking/running this time. Haha.) Obviously the tracker didn't produce a map, since I was on the treadmill, but it does give pace and calories burned details. I'm proud of myself. It's definitely a start!
I'm trying to keep up with doing it every other day, so tonight is my night to do it again. I don't know if I'll be able to fit it in my schedule, but I'm going to try.
