So...I didn't run Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. It was a long weekend with it being Memorial Day and all, plus I gave blood last Thursday which made running Friday not sound like a lot of fun. This morning wasn't very easy. The weather was perfect. It was light out. I felt good...until I started to run. I ran 14 min with a 1 min walk broken up in 30 second increments in the middle of the run, but that was because I really felt the strain on my legs this time. What's worse is I still felt out of breath when I got to work an hour and a half later.
Today is one of those days when it seems somewhat hopeless to keep running and that is when I remind myself, "I am doing it for my kids."
