30/30 Run/Walk

Over the last several weeks, I've been trying to complete the full cycle of running 3 minutes and then walking 3 minutes for a full hour - which would mean I would run a total of 30 minutes and walk for 30 minutes.

There is a series of trails behind our house ... I'd go about two loops around the outer trail.

What would typically happen is, I'd get to about 21 minutes (total) of running and then I could only walk from that point on.  I'd go about 2 or 3 times a week ... and no matter the situation, weather or my energy level, by the time I complete my 7th run cycle, I could no longer run ... it'd be just before I completed the 2nd loop.

Then we had a cold front move in ...the humidity down; temps went from mid to upper 90's to upper 80's and lower 90's.  On Saturday, we had a high of 86 and I was able, for the first time, run the entire 30 minutes ... in other words, I ran 3, walked 3 for the full 60 minutes.  And it was wonderful!

Today, I had to take the car to the mechanic.  Since I had no ride home, I just ran home.  I was able to get up to 27 minutes no problem.  I love cold fronts in the fall!

Also - just to note - I'm take up to 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar a day now.  I mix two tbls in with a regular-sized sports drink bottle, and then I dump in some crystal light.  The ACV makes the CL quite zippy!  I noticed, that after I upped the ACV intake, all my mosquito bites seemed to vanish in a matter of days.  Also, it seems the fungus is continuing to recede.
