Really weird things happening, and I don't mean dreams about crazy Dominicans, I mean this running thing. I hate running. I have been looking forward to running.
Can you say contradiction?
I was super excited about running today because I so hated the elliptical yesterday.
Can I ask you a question?
Why can I spend 30 minutes, non-stop, on the elliptical, but I can only run for 5 1/2 minutes without walking? Can someone explain this to me? I even do pre-programmed workouts on the elliptical that run through all the levels...not just doing 30 minutes on level ONE. Understand what I am saying here? I am not even trying to run all out. I am talking about a very easy pace.
I don't get it.
Super excited about running today. I had to make myself wait until all the work and school traffic had died down. I would hate to get splattered across the pavement because someone wasn't paying attention. And, it hasn't been so long since I had to get kids to school that I don't remember how hectic mornings can be. I always stretch a little, and then walk to get warmed up.
Things were not stretching or warming today.
I even stretched a little more out on the road before I started running. Running was super painful. Things were tight. I just kept at it. Eventually things loosened a bit. I know that I ran at least seven consecutive minutes before walking, but I did have an issue with the timer on my phone. It could have been more, but I can't say for certain.
I will work on the timer thing because that was super upsetting.
Have I mentioned that I have been looking forward to the cold front coming through?
I was outside when it got here.
I would have danced around, but the legs are a little wobbly.
