I did it.
I started running again.
Granted it was only for 60 second intervals. And it was 1 gazillion degrees outside.
But I did it.
~~~
I even got up early on Saturday with the purpose of running before the day began.
Plus I knew we were headed to the Lake that night, and I wouldn’t have time to do it later.
And you know what, I had my best time of the week! It felt great to get back to challenging myself.
~~~
But you know what’s even better then that?
Last night I ran for 90 second intervals.
Yes I’m serious. This is huge for 2 reasons.
 ~~~
First, last time I started C25K, I stayed at each level for at least 2 weeks.  Guess I was afraid that I would fail and thought staying where I was had to be better then failing. Second, I wasn’t sure until I put on my HRM and went to set the intervals of what I was going to do.  I just thought, I have to at least try it, I can always go back if I need to. But I didn’t fail.  I did it.
~~~
And to my surprise I felt less like vomiting then I did last week. 
Except when I was done and sat on our front step, which I attribute to burping up the spagetti I had for dinner, but still no urge to vomit while running!
 ~~~
Oh and did I fail to mention that I did this run in my husbands black mesh basketball shorts?  Yeah, I did.
My other capris that I run in were in the washer and dryer respectively.  I started to put on my terrycloth capris and knew that was just sitting myself up for failure because I was hot before I even walked out the door. I had to wear some biker shorts underneath because the inseam kept riding up, but it was much cooler then the other option.
~~~
Now it’s not all rainbows and unicorns.
My inner calves feel like someone is bouncing razorblades off of them when I walk, and my left ankle has a random twinge, but other then that I feel good. I think the mental rush I got from it overpowered any pain that I had.  And I hope that continues.

*I  made a new page (see above in the menu bar?) that will track my C25K training. Gotta stay focused!
