Wednesday Workout

Yesterday I ran at the gym while Carter was swimming. Lisa came along this time also so she and I ran side by side on the treadmills.

Now, no one would describe me as a graceful runner at all but the contrast between the two of us yesterday was stark and highlighted my ugly stride beautifully. Maybe that's not the right word, but you know what I mean.

She was running about 6 minute pace while I started with 7:30 and then dropped to 7 and 6:30 finally for two miles. I looked like I was in full gallop sprinting to stay ahead of some monstrous beast with arms and legs flailing.

She looked like she was out for a Sunday morning jog in the park all the while chatting with a friend.

Anyway, she's graceful, I'm not.

Final work out numbers: 5.6 miles, 810 calories, 40 minutes or so.
