Captain's Log, Stardate 06.21.2010
Some of you may not be on Facebook or Twitter and may not yet have heard me gushing (ad nauseum) about my new hobby!
I have never been able to say that before I started the Jeff Galloway running program, but now I can really say I love running!
Before you call the Gotham Sanitarium, read this to let me explain why this is cool and doesn't make me feel like I'm going to have a heart attack.
I'm not expecting to convert (many) people, but I have been just so excited about this new method that I can't shut up about it!
I chatted with my dad yesterday for Father's Day, and usually we don't have a whole lot to talk about but I spent 30 minutes talking about this running program. Dad was interested because he has been running since 1981 (which I didn't actually know until he told me, I thought he'd started running when I was in high school, but apparently I was 9 when he started running. The doctor told him his cholesterol was so high he'd be dead in a year if he didn't start exercising, so he started running. That's another reason I started running--since he enjoyed it, I was trying to enjoy it, too, and now with this Galloway method, I really am enjoying it for the first time in my life.)
I haven't run today (yet) because the heat index is so high, although I ran yesterday for 7.3 miles! That's the longest I've ever run in my life!
