I decided to try a little something different tonight for my evening workout. I thought it might be time to break BOB (as in BOB Ironman Dualie jogging stroller) out of the garage for something other than a walk....it was time for his first run. So I harnessed both kiddos in and "hit the pavement" for a 3M run.
The kids did great. When it was just Josiah, he would be screaming to get out at 2M, making it nearly impossible for him to come with me while I was training for the half marathon last year. Tonight, though, he just asked a lot of questions. Unfortunately, I was soooo not in the mood to answer...I was trying to find a groove. And Laney, she was perfect...she fell asleep.
But I have to say that jogging while pushing 50+ pounds (Josiah=32lbs, Laney=18lbs) is hard work, harder than jogging 2M for the first time in over a year. It was a whole body workout...my arms and shoulders were even "feeling the burn". I can't imagine what it would have been like using any other jogging stroller....BOB was so smooth.
In short, I enjoyed the change of scenery (even though the weather was far from perfect--75 degrees and 95% humidity)...and will plan on running with BOB during the evenings when Randy won't be home until late (or at all).
