May 1st 2010 - Run like the wind!
Saturday, May 01, 2010
Well maybe I didn't quite run like the wind but today for the 1st time in years I ran! I've been consistantly walking since February either on the treadmill or outside. Sometimes twice a day but I've been afraid to run because I do have arthritis in my knee and because of foot surgery in the past. I have felt stronger as time has gone on and tonight I was at the fitness center by myself and just felt the urge to try and run. I already do intervals on the treadmill so for 2- 1 minute shots I ran! It felt great! I do plan to go back tomorrow and try it again and see how I feel. I don't know how much I'll run in the future and have no plans to try for any marathons but in the meantime it just feels good to know I tried it and survived!
Today is a good day!
