      W5D3, done. I'm going to use that as my getting-back-on-the-horse point, start Week 6 on Wednesday and we'll see how it goes. But this was by far the biggest mental hurdle for me last time around, and the fact that I was able to go for 20 minutes today was exciting for me -- I wasn't running fast, but I was running!

        I ran the last run of week 3 OHR today. It was not my best, and not my worst run. I was on call from yesterday morning till this morning, and although I didn't really have to 'work' this time, I got some phone calls during the night, so I didn't sleep quite well.

          sefkhet, speed will come. Just getting out there to run is important! I'm not as fast as I"d like to be so I keep telling myself it just means I can enjoy my surroundings more. Wink Anne, way to get your run in on a day that you probably didn't much feel like it. Well, I'm trying to recruit another to join us in here. There's a new runner looking for advice on getting back into running (see thread here) and I hope he chooses to come here. Smile

                I've had a couple of those in the last month where I felt like I was flying and it was so disappointing when I logged to see it wasn't much quicker. Frustrating! Black eye

                  W6D1. I went a tiny, tiny bit further than I was expecting to, and the 'tiny, tiny bit' took me onto a hill that I walk up at least once a day, but DAMN, it's steep when you're running up it.

                          I can't believe I did it - my 20 minute run!!!! Actually, I was so amazed that I was actually running for 20 minutes, that I ended up going 23 minutes!!!! Big grin Big grin Big grin
                            Temperatures dropped rapidly, but I had a terrific run in the melting snow.

                              W6D2. It's COLD. I was desperate to finish my five minute walk and start running, just so that I would warm up! 25 minutes on Monday. Eeeep.

                                My first 45-minute run in a few years today! I just finished week 7 of OHR. It is good to finally be getting back in shape and going for longer runs. My heart rate monitor says that run burnt 487 calories, so I am off to have some eggnog French toast to make up for those. Smile
