Post-Run Report: April 25, 2017

My son and I after his first run.

I’m so very proud of the guy in the picture with me. That’s my son. He’s 22, and he’s gotten overweight and out of shape. He decided last week to go Paleo like his mom and dad, and today, he began running. We did a solid mile and a half and then we walked the rest out. It was a lot for him, but he did it. He never quit, and never complained. He also started with 5 push ups. I started with 80 (which felt surprisingly good). We kept the pace at an 11:30/mile, or so, which turned out to be good for him.

Since it was so hot out, I decided to not do any additional workout since I expected to run the following day. This didn’t happen due to many things including work, work, and more work, but I did end up getting in more running this week.
