Starting Over - Week 1 of C25K

I took a couple months off from running to try to recover from my foot injury from July.  I just kept reaggrivating it.  I needed to let it heal.  So, on Monday I started over on C25K.  I don't see it as a step back, since I had made it to week 10 of the 10K Trainer.  I see it as a review. 

Day 1

It was a lot harder than I thought it would be.  We started off faster, and it was great.  It was hard though.  My brain knew I should be able to go longer.  My body said no. I was sluggish. It felt good to get moving again.

Day 2

Today was easier running.  I was a little sad when I had to start walking.  That is, until I got to run 6.  Then I was about done. It was a balmy 21° and windy.  I was so cold from my elbows to my hands.  They turned red from the cold.

My smile when day 2 was done. I always try to keep a smile on my face when I run.  It keeps it fun. 


Day 3

The final day of week 1.  It was easier, in a way.  I usually get an energy burst at the end.  This time, when we got to the last run, I tried to go faster.  My legs just wouldn't obey my brain.  I was thrilled to finish week 1.  I love week 2 and am excited to move on.
