Last night after our mid-week worship service at Bellevue Church of Christ, Josh joined me again for the final run/walk in “Step 2” of the “Return to Running” program:
4 min run / 2 min walk x 4 5 min run / 2 min walk x 4
- 10 min run / 1 min walk x 3
- 15 min run / 1 min walk x 3
- 20 min run
- 25 min run
- 30 min run
We had a leisurely effort through the dark streets of Bellevue, and again my leg felt great. It was a very enjoyable run with my friend. I’m a bit frustrated with my elevated heart rate, but I guess this is to be expected after taking a 5 1/2-week break from running.
With Step 2 in the bank, today was a rest day from running, though I did get in 75-minutes of aqua jogging at the YMCA. This means that tomorrow will begin “Step 3,” and I’m actually supposed to run with Nathan!! Very much looking forward to getting back on the road with him. I’m also excited that Step 3 will include 30-minutes of actual running.
