Trying to run.....again

Are you sick of hearing this?
I am.
I haven't gone back and read my own posts but I am sure this is a topic 14 times over. I have been at the gym for about 3 weeks and been doing cardio as often as I can. Today I had no time for the gym but decided to get out on the road instead of the treadmill. Not an exact time but I think it was 40 minutes and I covered 3 miles.
I ran the first mile and then walked a bit and ran, ect. You know the drill. I have a decent circle of 3.07 miles that involves some hills so I just tried to keep up a good pace when I was walking to keep my heart thumping-which it definitely was.
Good thing I didn't wear my Heart monitor. I may have seen the heart attack I was feeling.
My aim is to be able to run the Firefighters race on October 31st. I am hoping the weight and cross training will help but I think I need to be running more days.
I'll let you know how the huffing and puffing is going.

Being outside is way better than running on a treadmill. Enjoy the scenery.
