It is more like stumbling...
I took up running as a form of exercise about 3 yrs ago after being inspired by my son...which is a pretty neat thing when I think about it.
I love it....but I am not fast...not even remotely.
I have never been fast really.
When I was younger I played a lot of basketball and was quite good.
I played the 2 spot and could shoot it really well .Had a knack for getting a clean look...which was a good thing.. because I was slow...
My goal has been to run 5 kms in under 30 minutes consistently.
This time is laughable to most people. Mothers pushing babies in a strollers are at the pace that I am.
A couple of summers ago I was right around 28 minutes... cant get back there for the life of me but I don't give up easy.
I went for a run today.
I didn't expect much. I had just gotten done a brutal set of 12 hrs shifts and was in truth a little hungover this morning.
The last time Id been out I had to pack it in after about 3.5 kms because of the heat and humidity and I was dying to redeem myself.
I had a good run today.
Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to it. I just felt like I could go forever.
I wish now that I had pushed myself a little bit harder with the pace but either way today was very encouraging....and every bit helps.
If only I could lay off the beer...but whos kiddin who....
