Holy yogi...how can not moving be so painful! I took my first Energy Yoga class this morning and we did most positions in static...that was tough! Again I have a feeling I ended up stretching brand new muscles...very humbling experience. The things I am willing to put myself through in order to be able to run pain-free :)
So, we did it! Ju and I ran 13K today...the sun was out when we started and it was dark when we finished...1h45m...I'm totally pleased!
There was uber hubby (not in the picture as he had gone ahead), my super sister-in-law and partner in crime, as well as my handsome son...I love having my crew with me!
Celebrating our 13K...yay us!
So here's what I learned today...my lungs are still not great...actually, my doctor has decided to put me back on the stronger inhaler :( ...and I was a bit sore from the yoga and I felt tired. Three good reasons to reschedule our 13K. Now, if all I got from blogging was enhanced motivation, it would already be worth it...because knowing that I would be able to write about it...and that my ticker lady would take a nice little jump forward...and that my dailymile counter would show a nice increase...well, it certainly weighed in my decision to go ahead. Also, I've read about some of the things many of you have had to overcome in order to get your runs in and that kicked my butt a little too. The only thing was the lungs...would it be okay to do this. Well, I figured I could always walk if I started coughing uncontrollably. Finally, having made plans with my super sis-in-law, well I figured I should at least give it a try...such a great idea to make plans to run with someone. Deep down I was feeling confident and I knew that I was going to learn more about my true limits by going ahead.
I haven't reached them yet! :)
Have a great weekend everyone.
