First Day in the Creek

Today Alyssa and I started our second day of training in stoner creek. I must say I am quite excited about this experience. We started out in the late afternoon/evening, the winds weren't as brisk as the first day, and we strolled through our run like a bunch of chatter boxes for the first day of grade 1. It's amazing how much faster and easier the run feels when your talking; we just went on and on about the most random topics and discussed ideas/plans for the future. With the second run under our belt I'm looking forward to week 2 of this journey. Alyssa also was real excited to try out her new running mitts: Women's 180s Ultralite CTG. She loves them says they really help with changing her watch and starting the gymboss as she doesn't have to take them off. They have little gel grips that allow you to even change touch sensitive ipods. Warm too. Oh and side note it was it's our 3 month anniversary today, it was nice to spend it together running (working towards our goal). :)

P.s. The Gymboss is this awesome little gadget for doing intervals whether it be biking, running, swimming, boxing, etc. You can program in a time for the first interval and a time for the rest period and it will go off at the end of each time by beeping, vibrating, or a combination of both. It's also waterproof and tracks how many sets you have completed. It's really great, I'd recommend it to anyone; it really takes the work out of doing any type of intervals and allows you to focus on training. Definitely impressed with that xmas present!

Below... some snapshots of us after our lil run


  1. Great job, keep it up! And the chatting is perfect - you want to do the running portions at a "conversational pace", so you should be able to carry on a conversation, not gasping for air. Running hard does not equal running good in training always! Good luck!
