I'm proud of myself for a few reasons today. No, I didn't complete the run, but I'm still pleased. First of all, I overcame a bit of a fight or flight reaction and got out there (in 28.9 degrees C [84 degrees F]). Secondly, I completed more of the running segments than on Sunday (I think I did 4 - one of those wasn't consecutively). I figured out that I was going too fast and so I slowed way down. When I couldn't run, I kept up my walking. Bottom line, I ran 917 meters (just over half a mile). That doesn't sound like much, but for a couch bunny, that's not too bad. While I realize that I have quite a long way to go before I can run that 5k, I'm happy to have seen improvement. I also recovered more quickly. I'll keep repeating week 1 until I can finish the running segments. I'll be back out on Thursday!
