Finally Broke Through

Friday, July 26, 2013

I have been dreaming of running for a while and I have tried the C25K to get me there. I didn't have much luck with it. Mostly I think out of fear. Too worried that I would over do it and end up with problems. I'm so glad to say last night I finally was able to stick with it and not just do the run/walk/run/walk. Got into the run after about 4 minutes of walking to warm up and I was able to stick with it and complete 1.25 miles running. In all honesty, I could have ran farther but again I didn't want to push too long out of worry. I did wake up this morning with a very stiff ankle but it is worth it to me. Who would have thought that after having a rod and two screws put into my leg and having had a heart attack 3 years ago, I would be able to run. There is hope for us all.

Thank you so much for all your inspiration my Spark friends, especially VP and Dee.
