It's always something...

    That's a good plan, saratg  It is easier to run indoors, plus the stroller makes it harder.

      Slow and steady sara, just like you're doing.  Your body adapts to the stresses you throw at it, keep up the good work!

        I have been slowly increasing my speed for my 45 min. run & I mean slowly.  I add 0.1 MPH/week, but progress is progress.  Recently I tried backing off (speed, not distance), since I swim a lot in the summer.  I found I don't feel as good the rest of the day if I go slower.  My body must have adapted to the state of being slightly, but constantly pushed.  Has anyone else noticed this?  I'm happy about it!

          Yeah Sara, if I back off too much I'll notice it in the way I'm feeling, I get a little sluggish.
