Let me be incredibly crass here for a moment. This morning’s run sucked donkey balls. I finished the damn thing. But it was NOT FUN.
It was so incredibly THICK outside. Pea soup. Molassas. Mud.
I had a hard time catching my breath during the running sessions.
My walking intervals were SLOW. I decided to use these to breath, because breathing was not happening during the running. (well, not happening easily)
During my 7th running interval, I thought I was going to throw up.
Irritated that my 2 miles of walking on Tuesday was FASTER than my 2 miles of intervals today.
|What we ran in this morning.|
I FINISHED THE DAMN THING! Plus an additional 15 minutes of recovery walking. For a total of 40 minutes on the trail.
There was no pain from the surgery incision OR the incision for the pellets. I did twinge a bit where my appendix USED to be.
My husband was a great running buddy, despite the fact that we got into an argument over whose timing system was correct. (that would be mine, of course)
I love my little Gymboss. Much nicer than trying to keep track of my intervals on my watch. (I don’t like using my C25K app for a variety of reasons. Might need to look into trying another one at some point)
My cardio recovered a lot faster than I expected.
My legs are not hurting.
My flexibility isn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. The stretches felt good.
I did NOT throw up!!
I cannot wait for cooler weather to get here. It is SO MUCH EASIER to do this when it is 40 degrees outside! Hell, even 60 would be really nice.
