i don't really like it, i mean really do i look happy?
i took this at the 3.75 mile mark on todays run/walk.
the irony of something that feels so excrutiating at the time, like an hour of exercise, is that it makes you feel spectacular for the remaining 12 hours of the day...
i am running a little further everyday...at least that is my goal. even if it is one foot further than the last time i am counting it as success.
i have a 4 mile loop i do around my town...today i ran almost 2 miles of it and walked the rest.
i keep repeating to myself, "for god sakes woman you ran 13 miles at one point!" but getting back on that horse is work and conditioning.
that and the fact that i am almost 30 pounds heavier than when i ran that and it is 85-90 degrees here now.
as i was walking i get quiet time to think...i realized when i started running 2 years ago, i had been doing the eliptical and stair machine for almost 4 monthes and built up the respiratory fitness needed to run distances...i am starting from scratch again so each foot really is a success.
i figure if i run or walk 4 miles...it is still 4 miles! slow and steady right?
