I read this book…okay I skimmed this book. It’s how to tackle a 13-week walk to run plan. I looked at the first week and said, “I can totally do that.” I could and I did. This is week two and I took Marble with me for the walk/run around the neighborhood. It entails eight intervals of four minutes walking followed by a minute of running.
Here’s Marble’s commentary:
First walk interval
Ooh, a walk, a walk, a walk. We’re going for a walk!
Ooh! A run! Haha, I’m beating you Mom!
Second walk interval
Hey, don’t we usually turn there? We’re going on a long walk? Cool!
Again? Okay. I’m still beating you!
Third walk interval
Whew! I’m winded. We’ve never gone this way before. Mom, there’s lots of cars over here. I’m not sure I like this route.
Are we running from the cars? I’m totally on board with that.
Fourth walk interval
Good heavens Mom, where the heck are we? Are we there yet?
Fifth walk interval
Hey, that was our street. Where are you going? Home is that way!
Mom, are you nuts? You’re running AWAY from the house. Come on, let’s turn back. Please?
Sixth walk interval
It’s not too late. We can totally go back home. Mom, are you even listening to me?
Again? Really? Can we maybe just like sit? That patch of clover looks like an excellent spot.
Seventh walk interval
Why? Why are we still walking?
Eighth walk interval
STOP THE MADNESS!!!!
ZOMG! I see home! RUN HOME!
I have to admit, my legs feel that one. I wonder who is more sore, Marble or me?
