Well, it's August 15. I told you I would journey back into the running world today. And since it's on the internet, it must be true.
After I dropped the buggers off to school, I set out on my hellish 2 mile journey. And really, there is no other clean, non-cussy way to describe my run this morning.
I went immediately after dropping the kids off at school because I thought it would be cooler... huh. The humidity was 91% and the real feel temp was 95! And I did not feel that wonderful ocean breeze even a little. It was miserable.
But, the important thing is that I was out there. Pounding the pavement. Sweating out the fat. And it felt good.
I used the Couch to 5K app again. I am just starting from the beginning. I have not run since May. So, I was not expecting much.
Today's run was a combo run/walk in intervals of 60sec/90sec (respectively) for 20 minutes. And a 5-minute warm up and 5-minute cool down. I had an additional 4 minutes because I did not turn around when I hit the halfway mark. My additional 4 minutes were spent cursing the ground, my legs, the weather, the distance to the house. It was so hot, at 1.5 miles I nearly threw up. That was fun.
Oh my. It's happening. I signed up for the Star Wars 10K. I am SO excited. Jackie and Meghan are going to be running as well.
I also signed Rea and I up for the Star Wars 5K the day before. Should be fun. I am so happy that Rea is going to run with me.
Now, I have no choice but to start training and get my fat butt back in shape. Wish me luck. I will need it.
