Day 2: Run/Walk Method

Today was my second day to do the run/walk method of Jeff Galloway. When I did it Sunday, I ran for 30 seconds and walked for 30 seconds for the entire 3.11 miles. I felt pretty good and decided to bump it up to 1 minute:1 minute to see how I did. It is amazing to me how close my times were. But, it was a harder run for sure.

Now, I take a Zumba class on Monday evenings, and this being my second run after a Zumba class, I am here to tell you that I can definitely feel it in my legs. Whatever muscles are used in Zumba are screaming at me while I’m running but geez it feels fantastic. No joke. It makes me feel like something is working. So I’m not totally sure if it was a harder run because I bumped it up to 1:1 or if it was because of the Zumba. Or both.

Tomorrow is a rest day. THANK GOD. I’m not gonna lie, I like my rest days. My legs like my rest days. I NEED those rest days.

Because I love visuals, I am going to post the comparison of today’s run and Sunday’s run to show you how close they were.
