That’s right. I had to show Wednesday who was boss this morning by dragging my booty out of bed and attempting to run. I had decided beforehand to do a warm up walk, then do a 4:1 run/walk ratio. But after I warmed up and started to run, my body was feeling really good. (which by the way NEVER happens while running). I told myself that if I could make it past the 4 minute mark and still feel good then I would just keep running until I reached a mile.
My plan worked. I made it to a mile then did a recovery walk. Then I pushed myself enough to run back. For the first time in over 4 months, my run actually felt easy. I wasn’t breathing too hard and my legs weren’t cursing at me. This is major improvement. But maybe it is the fact that I was running so slow. Who knows? Running is running.
