I may be slow
but I AM MY OWN SUPERHERO. I went for a run this morning. Quite honestly the "running" I've been doing this break has been a lot more walking. And a lot of putting it off. I was finally honest with myself and realized that if I want to "run" races I actually need to get out there and run. So I began Hal Higdon's Half Marathon training program today. On the schedule was a 3 mile run. So I went out and ran. It was hard and I am slow but I did it. This Sunday is a 5k race that I would love to do only to break the ice so to speak. I have not done a local race in years and the first one is going to be scary (yeah, I'm weird that way). I did 3 miles today in 50 minutes, by Sunday I should be able to do it in 40-45. That is at least reasonable. I know there will be walkers slower than that - there always are. So I may do it just to start the ball rolling again. I may be slow but at least I'm out there doing it.
