slooooow going.

I did as promised & went out first thing Sunday morning and as I was running I kept thinking..

 

“my time is going to be great! I am running much further distances at a time than ever before [since I started running again, that is]”

 

But then I got home & figured out that my mile even with all that running is STILL over 15 minutes! How the heck am I still so slow?

 

Seriously…

 

How long does it take to get from a 15 minute mile to a 10 minute mile?

 

I want a 10 minute mile..

 

like…now.

 

So I am struggling a little with being disappointed in myself for that. I feel like I should be improving on my time at this point especially since I am doing more actual running & less walking…do I really walk as fast as I run cause that is really kinda pathetic.

 


89 day to go.

So turns out, running is really hard.

 

Like…really.

 

My butt made it harder though, I think it bounced more than my boobs.

 

totally scary.

 

I actually would stop running if I heard a car coming up behind me for fear of what they might have to witness.

 

I did not play with the the running app enough & kept accidentally stopping my session like a moron so my stats for Day 1 are all wonky. I think I went about 1.5 miles in 22 minutes. The longest I was able to¬† bounce around like a fool jog was 1.5 minutes which was actually longer than I expected! Oh, running on dirt is way easier than running on the road too, might have to think about trail running…

 

Question: Am I officially a runner yet?

Answer: Not even close.
