Post-Run Report: April 28, 2017

My son Brendon and I after our run.

Today was a bit tougher on me, and my son made some serious headway in his progress as well. We started with push ups. Brendon did 10, while I started with 80. We then hit the pavement and set out for his mile and a half at a 11:30/mile pace. We kept it up, and after he was done with his mile and a half, I reset my Garmin Fenix 3 HR and set out on a two-three mile run at my pace. I got around the lake a few laps at about an 8:30/mile pace when Brendon decided to join me for a lap. To his credit, he kept up, made sure his shoulders were back and he moved his arms properly, and he was careful with his breathing. Once the lap was done (it’s a quarter of a mile), he went back to his walking, but I was impressed with his desire to keep up and get a little more in.

My solo run ended up being a two-mile run instead of a three-mile due to the heat, but I still feel like I got a good workout, and my pace ended up with being around an 8:38/mile average for the two miles. I’m happy with anything sub-9, so there’s that.

My next run will be Monday, and I’m looking forward to it!
