Conquering One Fear

Remember when I said I would OUTRUN the cloud? As in actual running? Then things got worse and worse and I could walk long distances but I could not get my heart-rate up at all. So there has be no running. None. Zero. I honestly do not remember the last time I plugged in the treadmill. I just had to look for the magnet-string-thingy for 5 minutes.

But look what I did.

One year ago, I would have been embarassed to post a picture of a 30 min/2 mile run. That’s just really fast walking. But today, it was an honest to goodness run. I tried to keep to a 13min/mile pace but it was too much, I had to interval a bit. Yet running without feeling any of my toes and most of my left foot, without tripping or stopping… YEAH ME!

It’s a bit dumb to get back on right before rads. I’m guessing it’s going to hurt a lot to run when the burn starts. But right now, today, it felt good. and thank you Monique for the encouragement to get back to it the other night!

    I run at a fast walk pace, but I’ve made my peace with it. :)

    I am glad you did point out the photo gallery, because I had totally missed it before. Those are some gorgeous pics, V. Seriously.
