Stop the world! Jenna has started running! I am not running very far or very fast. I don't like running. I'm not even running for me, but running I am. I have been on three "runs" now around my block. The first time I ran .83 miles in 13 minutes. So why am I running exactly? I am running to get my dog some exercise. I have a miniature poodle named Pippin and I feel bad that I have kind of been ignoring him for a while since I have been so focused on the girls and on losing weight. Now it will be a two way benefit! I am finally thin enough to where I am not in physical pain when I run (I used to have a lot of pain where my excess fat bounced while running). Anyway, Pippin needs to get some exercise and he loves to be outside. I want to get him out so he is not cramped up in the house all day and he gets some of his energy out. Although I am sure that I am exhausting myself more than him.
Pippin was not cooperating with the camera
This is me before running, I thought it would be better to take a picture of me before rather than after, and I only ran for 17 minutes. Ha! I think I am looking super cool in my CU Buffs outfit. I got that outfit when I was in the Marching Band and for several years I was too fat to wear it. I have been wearing the pants to Zumba lately since it has been so cold.
Anyway, here is a summary of my run in my Argus App
So you can see I ran 1.39 miles, and it took me 17 minutes and 11 seconds. The tile all the way to the right is a map of where I ran, basically a circle within a circle. I ran one mile in 12 minutes and 21 seconds. I have a long way to go if I want to get back to my high school time of 9 minutes per mile. But I am glad that I am getting some extra exercise, and Pippin is getting some exercise too.
