A paralegal at work has been talking about the C25k (Couchto 5k) app that she is using. I decided that I could use just such an app to help me with increase my running distance. I downloaded RunDouble to get from 5k to 10k.
This weekend, we traveled down to south Alabama to visit my parents Friday. Saturday, I used my new app for the first time. After a five-minute warm up, you jogged for eight minutes then walked for one. After 44 minutes, I had covered over four miles. I was pretty pleased (though my left knee was not excited about the last five minutes or so). The app told you when to jog and when to walk and kept up with distance and pace based upon GPS. There was a constant drizzle, the temperature was nice, and south Alabama is pretty flat, so it was a pleasant jog.
Afterward, we took the kids to the beach.
We chose the wettest day in years…so we ended up seeing Madagascar 3… (really funny, by the way). Afterward, there was a break in the weather long enough to play out in the sand.
They had fun, but we will be going back, so they can get more than their feet in the water… Hope you guys had a great weekend!!
