So...this did not go as well as I had hoped.
I started out around the lake and after the warm up, was able to do the first three intervals of running. That's when it got hard. I tried really hard to push myself, but my legs just would not let me. So I allowed myself to walk. I walked about 3 miles in an hour and have to admit that I'm proud of it.
I didn't choose the easiest trail. Lake Johnson has quite a few hills and is not an easy trail to just go for a jog on. I'm proud that I at least tried and did at least some of it. I will definitely try again and again until I get it. I just have to allow my lungs to adapt and my legs to know what running feels like. But I'm on my way to becoming a runner!!
I've decided to let this take as much time as it needs to happen. I'm in no rush to become a runner...plus, I'm still carrying a lot of weight on my body, which as ya'll know can make it really difficult.
I do have to say that I kept thinking of my blogging family as I was jogging though. Thinking about how if ya'll can do it, then I can do it too!! It was some great motivation & I know one day when I am able to run the full 3 miles, I'll be thankful that I had ya'lls support the whole way :-)
