2-44 days to go

Last night was my second time out in my jogging shoes. This time the weather was a bit better: less wind for a start. Still not warm by any stretch of the imagination though.

Fortunately the walking helped get me warm and I even managed to get a few running sessions in as well. From this tree to the next and then I ran until at least the next tree, but tried for a bit more. It showed in the final tally. Where I managed to get 3,75 kilometers in on Monday, last night I managed a whole half kilometer extra in the same time of 45 minutes. 

Of course I'm nowhere near good, but I moving forward. The Hydro Rundt run (62 minutes last year) in two weeks' time will be mostly walking with some running, but I am aiming for a triathlon that is mostly running with some walking.

    Every improvement must be cherished for what it offers! Even consistent walking, done regularly, will result, eventually, in running... step by step! YAM xx

  2. WTG Mara...I love your new are woman I hear you roar and send you lots of good vibes as you train. You proved your endurance last year. You go girl
    Hugs madi and mom

  3. You are a very brave woman and I look forward to watching you train!

  4. SO proud of you, Mara. Somehow, your running/walking triathlon training reminds me of your walk with Lindy at Lake Louise.
    Oh yes, and did you know Yamini refers to you as "Miss Oswin's maid" in an e-mail? Made me laugh.
    Wishing you your very best in the triathlon. Hugs from here, Kay and Dick and Bonnie-Belinda.

  5. You are an inspiration! With the boot gone, I am walking and climbing stairs with you in spirit!

  6. Yam says you need encouragement! You should run for those who cannot. I used to run all the time, just jogging. Now I have a few issues, and cannot! You go, girl!
