Yesterday I ran with Abby in her jogging stroller for the first time. I bought this stroller last summer and I use it all the time while walking but I had yet to venture out for a run with it until yesterday.
Abby was ready to go!!! I drove to the park and parked my car on the main road so I could run to the playground and back. Each way is about 3/4 mile, plus I ran a little extra so I do about 2 miles total. I didn’t want to run too far or too long because this was my first time running with the stroller and it was hot. By the time I got to the playground I was dripping in sweat, but still smiling!!!
Abby was ready to get out of the stroller and onto the playground!
Abby played for about an hour on the see-saw, slides and swings. The park was rampant with bunnies yesterday and Abby got plenty of exercise chasing them all around.
When she was done I ran from the playground back to the car. Running with the jogging stroller was rough, pushing an extra 60 or so pounds made running so much harder, but I look froward to how much easier it will now feel without it. I had a hard time with not being able to swing both my arms, I had to keep switching the hand I was pushing the stroller with, there is definitely a learning curve. I started to feel a little more comfortable during the run back to the car but I am not sure I would be able to run more then 4-5 miles with the stroller. I guess we will see what happens after I gain more experience with it.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!! My other daughter Angelica is graduating form junior high tonight!!! I can’t believe I have a kid going into high school!! Congrats Angelica, I you!!!
