And I Ran, I Ran So Far Away...

Monday, December 05, 2011
That's not entirely true.  I didn't run very far at all.  But ... I ran.  This is the first time in almost a year that I've attempted running on the treadmill.  Remember last December?  I tripped over my mouse cord and broke my toe (again).  My big plans of finally becoming a runner were dashed.  And I told myself that I will never be one.  I'm OK with never being a "runner" per se but the dream never really died.  The arthritis means my feet are more susceptible to fractures than your average Joe so I think really long distance running will forever be a just-out-of-reach fantasy.  I'm not ruling out shorter distances sometime in my lifetime though - 5K, maybe 10. 

That's a long way off though. 

For now, I'm pleased that I did 7 sets of run 1 minute / walk 2 minutes.  I felt fantastic not only after I was done but WHILE I was running!  I didn't feel overly out of breath or like I was going to pass out.  Losing even a couple of pounds seems to have made a difference...

We'll see how things go.  Please feet.  Don't break on me again!!!
