I did it! I ran one mile today and did NOT die! That is so encouraging, and I am hopeful that I won’t be too sore tomorrow, so I can do it again.
The first 1/2 of the mile was difficult. My body was not in rhythm with my breathing. Everything was awkward. But, by the half way mark, my body and mind found their pace and I actually enjoyed my run (albeit for 12 minutes). I add that check to the win column!
Bonus… after I got home, my 11 year old son, David, wanted to go for our 4 mile bike ride I had promised him. So, after a lot of water and protein, we headed out in the 99 degree heat and met our goal! It was awesome.
If we had only added a little pool time, I could have called today a triathlon. Maybe tomorrow.
