I went to mapmyrun.com this morning, to check the distance of one of my favorite walking paths.
It is exactly 1 mile from the trailhead to the other end of the path, at a pedestrian bridge over the Clackamas River. When I mentioned this to Mark, he said, "Oh, that doesn't seem so far," and he agreed to go with me on my morning run today.
This week I ran 2 miles on the track on Monday and Wednesday after work. This morning I was ready for a little scenic variety!
Here I am at one mile, just after I turned around at the other end of the bridge.
It's overcast this morning, but we only had a few drips, not real rain.
Weight statistics this week: b-o-r-i-n-g...
I want to start adding some weight-lifting into my non-running days. I plan to do some squats and lunges to strengthen my leg muscles. I've been having a wee bit of knee discomfort at the 2-mile level, so I may drop back a bit on the distance for now, or break it up with some walking stretches.
Any other suggestions?
Have a great week Skinnies!
