Running Day 3: I didn't.

That is, I got up, I had water and peanut butter, and I got dressed, including finally digging out my real running shoes, as opposed to my everyday sneakers, which I had been wearing.

And I got out of the house, too. I walked the seven minutes to Ocean Parkway, I ran for sixty seconds. I walked for 90. I then...ran for thirty seconds and that was that for the running. Not that I stopped. I walked about as far as I'd run on Tuesday, and I was out for just a bit longer.

I'm not sure why I had to do that. My legs are very stiff, of course, although I do warm up first. I'm currently thinking I'm just not used to the shoes, which are cushioned but designed for superpronators like me - very stiff. Which is a good thing, but I'm not used to them. So I'll wear them more often and GET used to them.

I'm not disappointed - disappointed would be giving up entirely. I walked at a moderate pace for 35 minutes. This is *good*.

now that I'll have a much flatter walk to transit, I'm thinking of emulating you, but I'm unsure of how to ensure that I do the 60/90 thing.

I use my watch, which has a second hand. However, I also do not have a purse or a backpack or even a fanny pack. I carry a key in my skirt pocket. I wouldn't do it with any sort of extra weight.
