Whew! Done! I had to use Google Maps to calculate the distance I ran/walked in 21 minutes... 1.5 miles! Which equals a 14 minute mile. I'm not sure how far R. and I ran on our first day training, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't have traveled a mile in 14 minutes on my own to feet at that point.
The best part is that Gatsby is a GREAT running partner! Well, aside from wanting to stop to lift his leg every minute or two. Gotta love boy dogs. Granted, Gats power-walked while I jogged, but he was still very easy for me to walk and jog with tonight. What a relief after the bad run I had with Lola on Sunday!
Overall I am proud of myself for going out and completing today's regimen. Better late than never, right? I still miss running with R., though. Gatsby was really fun to work out with and I will definitely continue jogging with him, but he's not much of a conversationalist and his own encouragement is a sideways grin over his shoulder every so often.
Again, I am experiencing my chest feeling constricted and I keep coughing. If I try to take a deep breath, I only wheeze and then can't stop coughing spasmodically... I think I really do need to make a doctor's appointment. Pretty sure this is another possible asthma attack.
