Getting out the old Sneaks
Today I ran...yes ladies...I ran 1.2 miles DOWN my road NON STOP, and then walked the same 1.2 miles UP the road.
I did not think I could do it, I kept thinking "I just want to make it half way, and then I will turn around."
I made it half way, and still had some spring to my step, so I kept going, rather pleased with my self I might add. Then got a bit further, and I got a bit winded. "PUSH IT LAURA!" I could feel the heart racing, the shirt I was wearing was wet with sweat, and my legs started to jiggle with each step. I pushed it for another .2 miles or so, and then turned around.
I walked the whole way up the mountain back to my car. I did stop to catch my breath 3 times, and to rest my SORE legs, but I DID IT!
NOTE: IF YOU LEAVE YOUR CAR WHERE YOU START, YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO WALK BACK TO IT IN ORDER TO ESCAPE THE PAIN! Very sneaky you see~
I did have my cell with me and truthfully I did contemplate calling Jay to come rescue me on the way back up the road, but I DID NOT...I PUSHED THROUGH, jiggly legs,wet shirt, winded breath, I pushed it and it felt amazing!
So now I am inspired, I have come across a 5K run for charity in a town nearby that is in June. Of course I had to ask Jay how far a 5K was...which he non-hesitantly answered "3.1 Miles". Hmmmm I thought "I bet I could do that if I worked at it!" Then he said "I'll do it with you!" SOLD! My friend Martha is the one who linked me to it, and I thank her.
Watch out road...here I come...
