For the last several years, I’ve toyed with the idea of joining a running group here in Spring Hill. I always talked myself out of it because I’m not able to go very fast and I need to take walk breaks.
A couple of weeks ago, one of the members of the running group decided to work a little harder at recruiting people. He had taken time off running and was coming back to it and said he was also slow and doing run/walk intervals. A friend of mine decided to join the group. She was also running intervals. So, I thought it over and figured it couldn’t hurt to try it out.
The drawback was that they did their running on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 4:45. Whoa! That’s a little earlier than I get up for the day. But, they go early to beat the heat and to get it done in time to get ready for people to head off to work. I joined them last week and had a good time! I ran on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (we did 6:00 on Saturday). I missed Tuesday this week, but I did run today and I’m planning to run Saturday before we leave for Atlanta.
I’m slow, but I’m doing it!
