I graduated back in June, and I managed to keep running, until I hurt my leg. I stopped, and didn't run at all over the holidays.
I decided to stop making excuses and actually get out there and do it! I was quite nervous, having not run for about 7 Weeks.
I thought that my normal route is about 3 miles, so if I walk, that is ok, if I walk and run some that is even better. I set my iPod for 15 minutes and found I had to walk for a few steps after about 5 minutes. I managed the 15 minutes and started walking. After a few moments I thought to myself, why am I walking-I could still run, so I ran another 5 minutes!
All in all, I did much better than I expected!
