I did it! I went to HB and ran for the first time in over a year! I was actually better than I thought! Pretty slow (obviously) but I ran for over 7 minutes without stopping right off the bat! That’s pretty good for me, when I started running a few years ago I started with the run one minute, walk one minute plan. Today I ran for 7, walked 2, ran 5, walked 3, ran 5, and then walked back to my car. Didn’t make it into the water for a swim because there was a big rip tide and the lifeguards kept running into the water to haul people out.
My legs are super sore, but I feel great! I got that runners high and I feel really strong and proud. I might be slow, but hey, for me this counts as a win!
