Volume Five Provides a Great Soundtrack for Granddad’s First Run in March

Sleping OliverSo I thought I’d post a rare picture of the sleeping Oliver, to prove that he is not always a wild child! I will write more about my day with Oliver later but or now let’s move on to yesterday’s run, well maybe not run, but it was a start! According to the training plan, yesterday was to be a 25 minute run, with a five-minute warm up walk. Now, I would probably have done the walk but I was running late because we were babysitting Zoe yesterday and I was up against impending darkness. So rather than waste time walking I just plunged right into the run. The thing is,if I was running fast, I would say maybe I needed to warm up,first with the walk, but I am going so slow that the run is actually the warm up!  I ran a course that is a modification of a course that’s I created as a 5K course, on a run back in February I covered the 2.56 mile course in 29:31, yesterday when I got back to my house I was at around the same time I didn’t feel that bad so I kept going for a tad more and ended the rum at 30 minutes covering 2.61 miles! Okay, so I ran for longer than I was supposed to and I didn’t do the 5 minute warm up walk, but today I feel pretty good and I think that if things go well I can either run again tomorrow or Thursday!
