back at it

Yesterday I went out for my run/walk after taking all of last week off. I set my C25K program for Week 1 Day 1 since I took last week off and hadn't yet completely ran through Week 1 without taking {unscheduled} walking breaks.

I started out the first running session thinking ...whew, this is a little tougher than last time I ran... but I ran the whole time. The second session was a little tougher and I was thinking ... I really should have run last week. The third session really hurt and I kept thinking ...hurry up lady, tell me to walk!! ...but I ran all but the last 5 seconds of it. I walked through the fourth.  I really struggled but I ran almost all of the last couple. When I got back inside, I looked down at my phone and saw that I had just completed Week 2 Day 1.

Woo hoo! No wonder why it was harder, my running sessions were 30 seconds longer each time around. Thirty seconds might not sound like much, but for me it is.  So, instead of feeling a little frustrated with myself, I was feeling pretty good about what I had just done!

Today was rough though.  My body was pretty sore from yesterday.  I only ran two and a half of the running sessions but I stayed on the track for the full 31 minutes.

**This post was for my future self to look back on someday when running is easier {hopefully} and I can see how much progress I've made.**

Well, all I did was run around and chase a 4 year old all day, and although I think that's great exercise, it doesn't make me lose weight. :) YOU are an inspiration to me. Keep it up!!
