2o blocks of painful fun :)

Monday, August 20, 2012

My chest hurts from a lot of heavy breathing. My best friend, (and man of honor) Robby and I decided to run again. This time, instead of running until I can't breath and then walking for a lot longer as usual, I said "Lets run a block then walk a block." Doing that really helped a lot. I felt better. I felt less overwhelmed by it, and was able to run a longer knowing that I had a good idea of when I'm able to walk. I forgot what this type of running is called, but I like it! It was a really nice day, the sky above was blanketed by dark clouds threatening us with a downpour. The wind was cool and helped us a lot! No over heating here. :) Luckily, we managed to get done running before the storm hit, and even still it didnt last very long. We walked/ran a total of 20 blocks! For some of you, that might not seem like a big number, but it is for me. I'm really proud of myself today, and Im hoping i can stick to it! My chest was hurting but I pushed through it, one point I felt myself slowing down before hitting the stop sign, so instead of stopping to walk I ran a bit faster to get to the stop sign quicker. :) and then I walked the block just to run again. We ran to his house (to get water before heading back to my house) and 2 blockes before I ran them both without walking. Again, I ran two blocks straight back to my house. Oh how my lungs are still hurting, pissed that I made them work today :)

    Just stay consistent and it will just keep getting easier and easier. Soon you'll look back at the beginning and laugh as how hard it seemed to be then and how easy it is now. Keep the faith.
