Today we walked up to the mile and a half maker...and then...I ran back.
All the way.
A mile and a half.
Which granted isn't THAT far and there are people on my flist who scoff at that and wouldn't even consider it a warmup....but for me this is huge. See...I was feeling like this a year ago...all cute and ahtletic...and while I knew I had a lot of sludge to pull off...I was FEELING really awesome. So of course I stumbled and faceplanted into bouts of depression and apathy. And now I am feeling that energetic RRAAAAAHHH that courses through you when you are getting an endorphin kick on a regular basis.
Do I have a ways to go? Absolutely. There's plenty of sludge I need to remelt off... I'm nowhere near as strong as I was a year ago... but DANG it...I ran a mile and a half today and felt like I could've done more!
The really great part...
