After the walk we went to the Running Room to go and get some watches to help with the running and to get a few things for the marathon. The watch I got was a Timex with 2 interval timers so that it beeps to tell me when to run and walk. This weeks pace is walk 2 minutes and run 1 minute.

60 Minute Run/Walk
On Saturday I was a bit sore from the class but I decided that I needed to do my walk and why not add in a 21 minute run. I ended up doing it on the treadmill when the girls were napping. In the class I found I had shin splints agains so I decided to warm up for 20 minutes, do the jog sequence followed by a 20 minute cool down. The running went great, I didn't like doing it on the treadmill because it was annoying increasing and decreasing the speed. I also felt like I was controlled by the speed of the treadmill and I couldn't go slower or faster. I was sore afterwards but not too bad. I felt great and I really enjoyed the jogging part. I am feeling more confident that I can become a runner.
