So, today was the day...after much talking and debate, my friend Adriana and I decided today was the day to start our after work running schedule. So, after much hype throughout the day, we got the gym shorts on, laced the running shoes and psyched ourselves up for an evening run.

Now, neither one of us is a seasoned runner. In fact, this is a New Year's resolution for us both so we were not expecting to do too well. I was quite surprised at our progress. We started out with a fast walk and then ran for half a mile, fast walk, half mile run...quick rest...then ran for a mile and walked another mile. All in all, not a bad first day. Got to admit I was expecting much less. And having a nice ocean breeze and ocean view made the time go by quickly.

My legs are feeling it already but we are gonna lace up those running shoes again tomorrow and try another round. Hopefully the legs can keep up. Got to gain some distance and speed as she has already signed us both up for a 5k. I'm already tired just thinking about it!

Have a good evening!

I walked the dog for about two blocks at a really slow pace. Does that count as exercise? :)
