The next time I walk/ran which was a few days later, it was a lot easier. My feet haven't felt like cinder blocks again. It didn't get my heart rate up quite so much. I also doubled the amount of running I did by shortening the time between running intervals. I also added a cul de sac to my running path. Now every time I do it I run a bit more and add a little distance... a short street, a culdesac, or something like that. I realized this past week that I seem looser all the way around... like my muscles don't hurt as much when I get up or I just seem to move easier. I also don't seem as tired during the day. It could be diet related more, but I think it's a little of both. I never thought I would say this, but I feel more energized and I kinda get why people get addicted to running. With the tiny bit I've done, I feel the high a little.
So, now I have to confess that I am only walk/running about 20 minutes... maybe even less. But it's getting a little longer each session. I am going to try to commit to doing it at least every other day. Right now it's kind of whenever I have time.
There you go... I hope this might help someone get off the couch and out of fear of pain or failing or even death and TRY! I totally had all those fears and still do. I haven't bought a sports bra yet because I am afraid I won't keep it up and it will be a waste. I'm ordering one right now!
