Day 233.

This morning's run was 9 miles, which I did at the park - 16 laps!  I walked there to warm up, then started my run.  The first five miles were fine, and went by fast.  I took a quick pit stop at the restroom, then continued on with the last 4 miles.  At that point, my legs started to feel heavy and tired, but I just pushed through it and felt good when I got to mile 9.  Then I walked for about another mile and half as a cool down.  When I got home, I did a 30 minute Pilates workout also.


  1. How much does the jogger slow you down? Once my ankle heals a bit more I'm going to have to circle town, I can't do my regular run- too many off-set rocks and such. You're my hero!

  2. Since I'm doing laps on a pretty level area, pushing the jogger doesn't slow me down too much - maybe about 30secs to 1 min. per mile. I don't mind going a little slower than my ideal pace; It's actually been okay so far. The way our schedules are right now, I still get to do my long runs without the stroller, and then I feel stronger, if that makes sense.

    Be careful out there with your injured ankle; don't take any unneccesary risks! You're smart to stay where you feel sure-footed. :)

  3. Thanks, I will be careful- I can't believe I did that.

    I believe you feel stronger. I don't have a double jogger yet- but the single one with my load of bricks in there weighs a ton. So you're kinda strength training ;)
