Went on my first run
Thursday, July 04, 2013
Yesterday my doctor who did my surgery a month ago said it's ok to start exercising again, so today I decided to go for a run.
I'm really shocked and writing this blog post because I'm so proud of the fact that I ran a mile. I know that's not much to some people, but it's a major accomplishment for me because I've never been able to run in the past....always gave up after the first minute and felt like I was going to throw up. But I pushed through today and did it. I'll admit, a couple of times I had to stop and power walk, but then I started running again after a few seconds of power walking. However, next time I go running, I will make sure I do it in the evening or early morning.....not in the middle of the day when it's hot outside! lol
And now, after running, I feel really good and positive. I don't even care if I lose weight slowly.....I am enjoying how good I feel right now and I would like to work up to running a few miles at a time.
