Starting Again

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

I probably picked the absolute worst time to start again - I mean the week of Thanksgiving... really, Shay? Oh well, I like a challenge!

Yesterday evening I did my first run since the time changed. I was out of town for a week and worked out in a hotel gym, and the other days I did short power workouts inside. Anyway, so yesterday my goal was to just run one lap around my neighborhood and then walk one lap (each lap is roughly 1/3 mile) and do a total of four laps. Because I'd slacked on running, I wanted to give myself permission to take is slow and ease back into it. And do you know what I did? I walked one lap as a warm up then I ran all four other laps. I kept hearing the voice in my headphone say I'd gone another 1/2 mile and just decided to keep going. It felt AMAZING. I pushed myself and just really made myself proud.

Yay for small steps!

    Wow! That is incredible! I wish I could run. I feel like I would love it...but I just am not patient enough to work my way into it. I don't like being outside enough to do it...I love walking on a treadmill, though!!!

    My first doctor told me to just take a leisurely walk or stroll down the street and that is howit started for me. I now do over 10 mles per day on my stationaryindoor reculmbent cycle in about 45 minutes or less each day. and I am down 60 pounds and my numbers are all improving daily. Keep focused for success. You cn do it. Go for it.
