The other day, I posted about running, how I started running and was enjoying it and was wondering if elliptical miles are equivalent to ground miles.
On Saturday, I ran one mile in twenty minutes, less than half of what I can do on the elliptical. I walked that last quarter mile. And that running makes me feel very breathing, much ow. I’m still sore on Tuesday.
BUT I RAN A MILE!!! Well, walked some of it, but I did it! And now I have a goal to work toward. Emotionally, I felt ready to take on the world.
On the other hand, though, I’m not particularly looking forward to running outside and being sore again. My excitement about running has faded a bit, probably because I skipped a few days because, guess what, I’m sore!
So, here’s what I’m going to do.
I’m not going to run for the rest of this week, or at least until Saturday. I think I’m going to do yoga instead or just forget it because it’s VBS week and Vacation Bible School tends to wear me out anyway. It’s plenty of exercise, I think.
Next week, I will reevaluate. Figure out running days, figure out elliptical days, figure out other exercise days. Nothing super strict, since I have no desire whatsoever to run in the rain (and we got a flash hail storm yesterday so…).
Thank you to everyone who encourages me in this. Encouragement really helps and means a lot.
Short post today, but hopefully soon there will be a longer post, maybe even one about writing
because hey this is a writing blog… i think.
