So Sunday night after I wrote that post I ran on the tread mill for 30 minutes and then did one minute walk and 3 minute run * 4 which was by FAR my best run yet.
Then Monday my sister had TWINS (yay!) and Tuesday and Wednesday I was sick as a dog and…. my next run was yesterday (Sunday) morning, for about 25 minutes with a walk in the middle.
So I missed an entire week of running, I did no exercise of any kind to be honest. I don’t even think I used the stairs at work once which is unusual for me. Proves the point that a body at rest tends to stay at rest!
But my mom decided that she was going to start the C25K plan so I started week 1 day one with her last night. She did better than I did my first day, she finished without ever thinking of quitting. Plus this morning’s almost 25 minute run was with my brother-in-law. Two runs with two different running partners in one day!
Now that I may have convinced 2 family members that running is all that I better get my butt back out there and on schedule. So once again my alarm is set for 4:30 a.m. and my sneakers and socks are sitting at the end of the bed. No more excuses!
By the way, notice how I blame this entire falling off the wagon thing on my sister having babies? Talk about some negative karma…
