On Thursdays We Run

Today we said good-bye to our writer at work. We took her out to lunch, we stuffed her with cake, and we drank till our heart’s content. Then I remembered I had committed to run with my friend, who hates running.

We walked down to the park, stopping to take a picture of the cute little tulip display that someone had lined with lights. Then I turned on Runkeeper and we aimed at 2 mile run.

We kept it a super easy pace, talking the whole way, sharing funny stories, and looking around at the gorgeous scenery. That’s the way to attract your non-runner friends, just try to keep things fun and light. After completing a little over a  mile we took a break to stretch, drink water, and then get ready to do the next mile. For the beginner runners out there this is such a great way to slowly get your body to adjust to running. I learned that my body recovers better with ample stretching and easy running. I will eventually get to the half marathon and fast running pace, but for now I’m just enjoying the process.

Tomorrow it’s time for some kickboxing, movies, and popcorn ❤ What are your weekend plans? Doing any running?

    Great advice for running and any activity requiring sustained cardio! It’s amazing how quickly the body can be ready to go again after a short break and stretch!
