Ya’ll. I did something this week. I traded up. For this bad boy. It was inevitable really. Our jogging stroller was a bit of a tank – since it was given to me, I passed on the love to a friend who’s starting the Couch 2 5k and needed a jogging stroller. It was big for our apartment and car and being a two stroller household because of it just was NOT working for us.
So I traded up.
I’m so excited. So very, very excited. I’ll have to make due with the Snap & Go for todays walk (if we make it, depending on how baby feels), and Tuesday’s Grand Opening of Stroller Strides Annapolis but that’s all good. They’re walking dates so it ain’t no thang. But Wednesday night? Game on bias.
So last week…
I fit in a run on Monday with a pal of mine – we did about 3 miles (a little less. Her baby girl had a melt down half way through the 2nd lap of the Naval Academy Stadium loop ).
Wednesday Adam and I did 3.5 miles (3 laps around the stadium – my new favorite place to run).
Saturday I fit in my 8 with a loop around the mall and then a trip to the Eastern Shore to check out the Cross Island Trail. Adam wanted to run 5 so it was perfect.
I didn’t think about it as an 8 miler until we started back to the car and then I was like shit yo. My legs are sore. Oh wait. I’ve already run SIX MILES. Shiiiiit. But eight miles. On the books.
We took turns pushing the stroller – but damn. Pushing 50 lbs of baby and stroller makes shit a lot more real.
All in all, a good workout, a great day. If you ever have the opportunity to go run or bike on the Cross Island Trail – do it. It’s a beautiful trail. After our workout, we had brunch over at Holly’s Restaurant (which I first read about on Liz’s blog. So glad I tried it out!)
French Toast and Fried Green Tomatoes. Delightfully carby post run breakfast.
But now for this week…
Monday – walk
Tuesday – stroller strides
Wednesday – 6x400m with 1/2 mile warm up & cool down. 2 minute rest between intervals.
Thursday – Run 3.5
Friday – rest
Saturday – run 9
Sunday – rest
Still working out how I’m going to fit my 9 miler in since hubs has his business school orientation all day. It may be a late afternoon run (Or I can use my baller new STROLLLLLLLEERRRRR by then. We’ll see. 🙂 )
