Try my hand at running...FOR REAL PEOPLE!
My girlfriend inspired me to try and I thought...Hey, no one is up to see me.
This was particularly important because I planned to run on the treadmill and it makes me nervous. Has me envision all of those America's Funnest Home Video's where people fly off the other end.
Yeah know what? I did it!
I made myself a routine like this.
Walked for 4 minutes at about 2.5km/hr, then ran for 1 minute at 4km/hr....REPEAT! Over the course of 30 minutes, I ran for 5. Doesn't sound like much when you break it down like that. But when you haven't done that since they forced you to in grade 9 (which was about 20 years ago) That's BIG TIME baby!
I e-mailed my girlfriend and expressed my excitement...told her I was actually sweating...as in...my forehead was wet!
She said (and it made me laugh and love her more)
My fat was more than crying...it was bawling uncontrollably...but I think I like it....A LOT!
So, for anyone who thinks they can't run....unless you are short a leg...I am proof that you CAN!
Until next time,
