Exploring the Neighborhood
Despite working out almost never for the first three weeks in June (oops), I manage to go for a walk or run/walk three out of the first four days I lived here. I'm still having some foot pain and I'm not in the greatest shape right now, so I'm continuning the run/walk intervals. I tell myself that Isis appreciates them too, since she is still getting in the running groove. On Wednesday, I decided to try for 3 miles with a pattern of 3 minutes running, 2 minutes walking. Garmin can very clearly illustrate the intervals for you:
After a bit of neighborhood exploration, I'm happy to say that my neighborhood seems well-suited for running: not too many hills, sidewalks when you get to bigger roads, and a decent amount of shade from tree coverage. My plan for now is to try to run/walk 3 times per week and do strength training the other 3 times per week. We will see how it all pans out once I get used to my new work schedule!
