I'm home from the running group meeting. I was the oldest person there. I was the slowest runner there. Oh well. Really, I don't care about that. We were broken down into runners and runners/walkers. I hung with the runner group, which was me and a couple of middle school girl gazelles. Seriously, it was lovely to see young women enjoying their fitness and athleticism. Sweet kids.
There were about four women whom I would guess were ten years my junior in the runner/walker group and they were quite nice. Our workout consisted of some rapid leg work - grapevines, skipping, side stepping, backwards running - all designed to improve our running dynamics. Then a 2.5 mile run. For me, it was too damn hot and too damned humid to be out on a parking lot running, but I did it. My recovery was way too slow, however. It took me too long to cool down and for my heartrate to return to good.
This is a 12 week program culminating in doing a 5k local run. I'm glad I went and I'll go back for more. I've got to look online to get my homework and exercise schedule. It will be something different, anyway.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Join a club.
