At the moment, I am running from grading. I need to do midterm grades, but I would rather do this. So I am running from grading at the moment to do this blog post.
I have a habit that is actually good for me. I run a little. More of a jog, really, as I am very slow. I am not signed up for a race. I am not doing couch to 5K. I do not even consider myself a "runner." I do not run every day, but I do try to run as often as I can
I run at the gym around the track. I do walking and running intervals, and try to maintain good form. I am more about avoiding injuries and fitness than competing in a race, and try to use chirunning form as much as possible. (I think I have seen too many knee scopes and orthopedic procedures on runners, so form and injury avoidance is most important for me.)
I run when I can. Not every day, and I try to get at least one day in between to allow my knees to rest. Though I have run two days in a row and not had any problems. I also stretch at the end of each session, which helps, too.
Running is a workout I can do relatively quickly. It is not dependent on a time, like a class. I go to the gym when I can. The baby gets to play in the childcare area, which he loves. They have a slide and a playhouse, and lots of toys and other kids for him to play with. Mommy gets some time to herself, and she gets out of the house.
I want to run more regularly. Someday it would be nice to try to train for a race. I may consider a race when I am able to actually run more regularly and longer. At this point, I am just trying to run consistently. That is all I can do right now.
