New old pants!!!
Tuesday, April 06, 2010
Several of you posted encouraging comments about my first 5K!! Thank you so much!! Y'all are awesome!!! (Can't tell I'm from Texas can you??! :) )
I finished the "race"!! That was my goal...to finish! I mostly walked, but learned a whole lot about the mental side of these things!! My family was there at the finish line to cheer me on and it was wonderful!
Two days later, my shins are still screaming - I usually run/walk on a treadmill, so this road running business was new for me! I have been stretching like a fiend, so I am getting back on the treadmill tonight!! The upside of all of this occurred this morning.....
I went to my closet (which like many of you, has a nice range of sizes!!) I pulled out a nice pair of capri pants, swiped the dust off of them (it has been two summers since they would fit my rear end!) and tried them on....they are down one size from where I was when I started all of this 3 weeks ago. THEY FIT!!!!! REALLY - no lying on the bed, no struggling with the zipper, no sucking in my gut....they really fit!!! WOOOOHOOOO!!!
So, as hard as Saturday was....physically and mentally....the desired effect was achieved!! We are on the right path - health and well-being....let's keep it up!! Yay-us!! :)
