I’ve been lurking for 3 weeks drawing such inspiration from all of you.
I just completed W3R3 and for the first time in my life I wasn’t gasping for air. I will be 49 this month and decided to embark while out of shape and about need to lose some weight. I’ve always admired runners. So first 30 sec run and I thought this will never work because I’m gasping at 30sec and how ridiculously sad is that. But today..... I breathed and did not gasp. I thought this must be what it feels like. Now I’m still slow (took the advice from group members) and early on I thought if I go any slower I’ll go backwards! Today my calves whined at my a little not pain just tired. I figured they can suck it up as long as I have oxygen. I finished and another verry strange thing happened. I actually wanted to run some more. I still have no clue how I will take those bigger leaps coming but if today is a clue, I am hopeful! Here’s a pic of me after today’s jog and I am the color of a regular person who ran 10 miles 😂
