Summer Run #1

I hate warm weather, but the one thing I like about summer in New York City is the ability to ditch the treadmilll and run outdoors, which is exactly what I did today. 5 miles in 52 minutes burning up a total of 960 calories. Not bad for my first run, but to be honest it was a lot tougher than I expected. The sun was brutal and with the muggy 88-degree weather my heart rate remained in the 168 – 172 bpm range the entire run.

It felt great after I was done, but I was a lot slower than I thought I’d be. (Still, it was a nicer debut than my first outdoor run last year.) By mid to late June I hope to be at 6 miles and keep building from there till mid-October when I do my final outdoor run before the winter weather arrives.
