Well, ran with both boys tonight and that was kind of trying on the patience... degenerated into a bit too much talking and goofing around, the walk segments were practically dead stops and I spent way too much time slowing down, hearding them out of the road, looking over my shoulder and generally keeping tabs.... was a little frustrating.
But on the plus side they are still asking to come with me and my younger son jumped right to week 3 with me after only two nights doing W1 and managed the whole thing, plus a little. I had to slow my pace a bit and, as I said, the walk segments were slow but not only did we finish all four run cycles, we tacked on an extra 2:00 and 90 second runs at the end. All told we were out for about 32 minutes and did 2 miles so definitely slower pace than I am used to doing alone. But even the 3 minute runs weren't hard. (probably the benefit of the pace) so that felt great. I might try to do W3D4 alone Friday, just to feel I got a more solid effort in and then move to W4 on Monday. We'll See.
Still, the boys out running with me, even if I have to moderate a bit, really is a great motivator and nice time together. Can't complain about that .
Weather was nice... didn't go out till almost 8:30 so was only about 77 degrees and not quite as humid. Definitely worth waiting and going a touch later.
Last night I also started the 100 pushup Challenge, did 5 sets of 6, 5, 4, 3, and 4 reps respectively. Form suffered a little on the last set but overal feels really good to have done it and gotten started. Also about time to start working on the diet again. All just a part of the grand plan for the big Four-OH!
See you all tomorrow!
