Last week I picked up a jogging stroller someone was giving away for free. I was quite surprised that it was so large, but I guess most jogging strollers are and I’m just used to smaller Japanese strollers.
We tested it out on Ty at home. He seemed quite comfortable even though I think the stroller is for older kids as the straps are a little too large for him.
He just chilled out in the stroller for a long time.
I hopped he’d be this relaxed in it when we took it for a spin.
On Sat we went out for our first family run. We had wonderful weather on Sat, but getting to the park was a bit hairy as we need to go through crowded Harajuku. We got many glances jogging with this monster. It’s basically the size of a bicycle. I must say, and I don’t mean this is a bad way, but I feel very American pushing this thing.
Ty only made a couple peeps on the way to the park, but after 1 lap in the park he was fast asleep. Motozo is still recovering from his marathon from last week so he took over the stroller so I could run a head a little faster. All my runs these days are rushed as I feel I need to get as much exercise in as possible while Ty is sleeping. Or if I leave Ty at home then I feel like I need to get home as fast as possible. So to get the most out of my short workouts I tend to push and Motozo was impressed 🙂 hehe.
I’m feeling a little stronger and fitter these days. Even though my workouts are super short I am seeing results as far as building stamina.
Ty slept peacefully the whole time until we were done and popped into a Starbucks.
Over all, the stroller was quite nice to use. Its light weight and with the huge wheels it was a super smooth ride for Ty and with him falling asleep (very rare for him) in it it was a good sign that he was comfortable. We’ll see how many times I can manage to use this thing.
And while were talking exercise. Here are the workouts I did last week.
Mon 27th -30min jog. Felt really tough!
Wed 29th –
ZWOW#6 10mins. Good leg workout.
Fri 2nd – 30min jog. Magically felt a lot easier.
Sat 3rd – Around 30min jog, half the time pushing jogging stroller.
It was a good workout week with 3 runs! 🙂 Happy happy.
