... of running.
My family doesn't really understand, because none of them are interested in fitness. I'm really worried. I want to tie on my shoes, go for a run and feel great and/or worn out when I come back. And I want the benefits that go with it.
I used to run. I was in the army, 11 years ago. At my fastest, I ran 16:08 for 2 miles. I desperately wanted to break 16:00. I injured my back (herniated disc) and never really recovered. I was medically discharged from the Army.
I've gained weight, but I know this time, trying to get in shape, is the real thing. I want to run, but I would like to be able to walk the next day, also. Previous tries have left me walking bent over like my elderly aunt, except I'm 36.
I'm going to give it a shot tomorrow, I think. Wish me luck.
