Jogging Failboat – New Workout Type #twit2fitPosted: April 18, 2009 | Author: bqx40 | Filed under: workout commentary | Tags: jogging stroller | 1 Comment »
I took my 8 month old for a 4 1/2 mile runjog in the jogging strollerfailboat. I’m already slightly unaccustomed to running in the sunny warm weather, running on hills, running without foam cushioning (used my Mizunos today). I decided to add to that a nice bulky jogging stroller and a 15 pound child.
This wasn’t so bad until I started running into a head wind and the 8 mph breeze was being fully caught by the jogging stroller, dropping me from an effortless 9’30” pace jog to a taxing 11+ minute pace jog. Nonetheless, I stayed under my easy target pace of 10 min/miles:
4.76 miles in 47’05” for 9’54” / mile
