is it really only 8 am? no wonder I can’t think of a title

I ran for 9 minutes without stopping this morning. I’m going to go ahead and call today a win even though it’s not quite 8 am. It doesn’t matter how the rest of the day goes. My Fitbit and my Map my Run app both prove it.

Last summer you all know I was doing great, losing weight, and loving running. Then an Achilles heel thing happened, and the holidays happened, and a medication change happened, and winter weather happened, and work happened, and a very bad attitude happened. Mostly the latter.

I’m not in the same place I was, but I’m working on it, getting out there as often as I can. It sucks to feel like I’m pretty much starting over, again, but I almost forgot that the more you do it the better it is. Duh.

So this morning I did my 2 mile run/walk intervals, and part of that time I ran 9 minutes without stopping. I ran without gasping for air, without my legs burning, and without feeling like I’m being stabbed in the hips.

Although I may not be able to stand up (or walk, or OMG climb stairs) later, today is definitely a good day. It might even be good enough to get me through tomorrow too! I could sleep from now until Friday and still win. Resting on laurels and all. Maybe. Maybe not so much.

What’s going on with you guys? Good things, bad things? Vent if you need to!

    Definitely a win. Good for you for getting back into it! Celebrate the achievements and don’t beat yourself up when it doesn’t go as planned. :)

    I started the C25K and then everything went to hell in a handbasket. Tomorrow. I will go tomorrow. It will be W1D1. I will. I wonder where my shoes are…

    It’s good to get your biggest accomplishment of the day out of the way before 8 a.m.
