Roads were made for journeys...
I went out yesterday morning for a planned 5 mile run, you know, running more than walking, but during the first mile I felt awful and had to stop before I even got to a mile, so I thought ...."blah...I'll try the C25K". I had downloaded the podcasts onto my Ipod, so I just dialed it up and headed off.
It was, surprisingly, fun! During the running segments I shot for a 10-minute or so mile, which is about 2 minutes/mile faster than I've ever tried running, and I DID IT! For all 6 (I think) running segments! I felt like a little sprinter out there (I'm sure it looked different to observers, but I felt like a speed demon!) I was definitely breathing hard and tired at the end, so I walked some trails for about 1.5 miles, then slowly jogged the last mile back to the start. At least I felt better at the end than I did at the beginning!
I guess I'll stick with this program until foot surgery and see what happens!
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Needs more cowbell!
