So... my eldest son (I17) and I have been running together off and on since spring. I have been plagued by a knee injury and ended up taking it pretty easy this summer. But, in the beginning of August, we started running again, using a wonderful training app called Zombies, Run! that tells you a story of survival during the zombie apocalypse while putting you through interval training.
This evening we finished week 4 of the 8 week training for a 5k. Once we finish this, we will probably move on to the next app that has numerous 'missions' you can run. I've found it fun and motivating and you never know what's gonna happen next- except it generally involves being chased by zombies! of course, right up my alley!! And I'm finally at the point where it feels GOOD to run again and not so much like work or "Oh, God! I'm gonna die!!"
In other news, the tomatoes are finally kicking into high gear so I guess I'm going to be spending my Friday night canning tomatoes while the boys are off at the first high school football game of the year. Oh well, it will keep me out of trouble.
