I got up this morning with every intention of running. I was going to move on to the next stage of the Beginner’s Guide to Running for Weight Loss which would have been Stage 6 where you walk for 3 minutes and run for 7 minutes and repeat twice. Well I walked the first 3 minutes and ran the first 7 minutes then walked the next 3 minutes and ended up running 2 minutes and I was done. My body absolutelys shut down and there was no running from this body. So I ended up just finishing with a walk.
I walked for 29.46 minutes and went 2.17 miles. Not to shabby I thought considering my body wasn’t going to run at all. I want to sign up for a 5K that is the first weekend in October but I am really scared that my body won’t let me do it. I can’t even get to 3 miles in 33 minutes yet. I am hoping in the next 2 weeks my running turns around so that I can sign up for the run. I’ll see how it goes. If anyone has any advice on how to deal with this issue, please let me know. As you know I have never been a runner so this is a real challenge that I am trying to overcome.
Once I got back from my failed run it was breakfast time.
Now I need to take Bubba to the doctor for a physical and then off to work. Have a great day.
