When I started out on this adventure, I was making laps around the culdesac street in front of the house. I was incredibly proud of myself being able to make it 7 laps without getting bored and still being able to breathe to one degree or another at the end. I was also looking for excuses to not go out front because I looked like a dork going round in circles and because I didn’t think I would EVER be able to do this with any regularity and I had my doubts about my ability to make any progress.
I don’t know when it happened, but I realized this morning that I look forward to my jaunts (most days) and they are getting easier. I looked at my pedometer this morning and it said that my hour today was spent going 4.45 miles. If I can maintain that, I can finish a half marathon at the appropriate pace to not be swept. I just need to work on more time and distance at that pace now.
I am feeling tired this morning (two mornings in a row like this have my legs feeling tired) but good. Now, I have um-teen hours to work today but I feel great and it should be a good day.
Now for a cup a coffee and a big drink of water.
