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.

yeeouch.

So I was so excited that after my first time out in my new Vibrams my legs & feet were not sore…so I went again.

Then I was afraid to get out of my bed this morning cause I thought someone had sawed off my feet in the night.

It is only the backs of my ankles that hurt, that’s it.. but holy geeze are they sore.

Sooooo, I did nada yesterday and some squats today & that is IT.

Tomorrow I am aiming to get out first thing in the a.m. before we hit 90 degrees again *gag* and just get it done so that anything I do throughout the rest of the day is just a bonus burn. I am certainly not looking forward to continuing this through the summer before going on the cruise but at the same time I am excited to see how I handle it. I am MOST excited to run a full 5K…start to finish. 🙂

Okay…not really…I am MOST excited to go on vacation but the 5k will get me by until September! I want to be one of the crazies [that I may or may not have made fun of in the past] that runs everyday on vacation. AND…my Vibrams will barely take up any space in my suitcase so I have room for more souvenirs.

score!
