Or: I declare a moral victory.
I found out a few things today. Some good, some not so good.
I can’t run for 5 minutes. Best I managed was 3:50. Second 5 I couldn’t do 3.
I can hear my wheezing over my noise-canceling earbuds.
I almost ran for 4 minutes!
My ankle doesn’t hurt nearly as much as it has in the past. Swelling was noticeably less.
I was wearing my fanny pack for the first time since my first run. I had to tighten it mid-run so it wouldn’t fall off. By quite a bit. And that, ladies and gents, is a big-time moral victory.
I walked/ran from The Herald to Cherry Road and back via Oakland in under 35 minutes.
Saturday I retreat to Week 3 and the 3 min/90 sec intervals, just until my fitness catches up.
