I ran for six tenths of a mile. I stopped for about 45-60 seconds after every two tenths of a mile. I am so pumped that I RAN again!!! I am going to run tomorrow night, but I am taking Thursday night off. I really am glad that I decided to go ahead and start running. I have some soreness, but I don't have any pain. My joints do not hurt. I really feel good. I cannot begin to say what running has done for me mentally. I am not concentrating on anything to do with my speed, just moving my feet one in front of the other.
From Bingham's book: (On lessons learned from running...)
"I learned how to be defeated, but not beaten. I learned how to admire
those who were faster than me without allowing myself to believe that they were
better than me. I learned that the real high was in finding your
limitations and exceeding them."
Progress is indeed a beautiful thing.
I am also thinking about signing up for a non-competitive sport team with the rec department for the summer. I am thinking kickball or volleyball. I think that would be fun to do.
