I have been so psyched by this mild weather. It makes me want to go outside and DO stuff. No more hibernating or cocooning! Tonight I went to the park and did intervals run/walk of 10/1, Week 1 Day 1 of the Bridge to 10K app that I started back in October and had to give up on.
No lie, it was hard. The first ten minutes felt like an hour. I was having a hard time believing I had run 4 x that long before – many times – when I was struggling to get to through the first interval. At almost the end of the third interval, I was telling myself to just finish that one and I could stop. Three intervals were good enough after so long of not running regularly. Then U2’s Miracle Drug came on and I heard the line “There’s no failure here sweetheart, Just when you quit….” The funny thing is I heard iit in the voice of my wonderful Aussie friend Andrew – and I heard it in his sexy Aussie accent and it pushed me to keep going. Andrew has been one of my biggest supporters and I could hear him in my head.
So…I did it. Times weren’t great – but I didn’t give up. Next time will be easier.
My right foot was a little sore after all the walking yesterday, I thought I was getting a blister on the sole of my foot, but it didn’t get that far – thankfully. I had never worn those shoes for that long before, so for my 5K at the end of March I’m going to stick to my older shoes until these new ones are broken in a little more.
