Saturday had us on the road most the day. Again. I'm not complaining. Just saying that finding walking time was a little bit of an issue.
This time the whole family went for a walk in the neighborhood. Everyone is trying hard to get to that 10 mile mark so we can go to Swirll.
We had fun walking, talking and laughing. We stopped when we wanted to look in the windows of the new construction homes or saw something interesting (sorry squished turtle).
I remember when I was a kid. Doesn't seem that long ago. I didn't have a book that taught me how to play and have fun. There were no instructions on how to begin to run and chase each other. We just did it. No goals. No intervals. Just play.
Today I decided to tap back into the Zen of running for fun. I ran when I felt like it; stopped when I wanted to stop. Probably not the way to train for a marathon but it was a fun way to run. The kids (who usually complain about running) got in on the fun. We picked out landmarks to run to and just did it. And you know what? We all enjoyed it. Time didn't matter. We just had to get to 3.1 miles.
Sunday: Some days you don't feel like doing it but you do it anyway and afterwards you are glad you did.
6 days of 5K completed. Yeah!
