I kicked my own tushie!

Today was the 2nd day of my running training build up schedule thingy mabob.  Whatever you call it.  

I began on monday running 1 minute and walking 2 minutes in 13 sets.  

Today I bumped myself up to running 1.5 minutes and walking 1.5 minutes and it was WAY more of a workout for me!!  I felt the push my 2nd run in and I had 13 runs I was doing.

This is how I remember training last year when I was first running after 20+ years.  

That weazing and feeling like you can't make it until the end of the timer - and then dreading when the walking time is over and you have to run again.  

Half way through I seriously felt like I was going to vomit.

But I didn't.  
I made it.  
I could do it.  
I've done way harder stuff.  
Easy smeazy.... (not really, but it will be)

Feels so good to just DO IT.

Don't think about it so much... just move forward and DO IT!

Friday my sets will be to run 2 minutes and walk 1 minute.
Okay... I'm gonna do it.  
It will kick my tushie again but I'm up for a tushie kickin'

Life is GOOD.
Peace out

That is awesome! I wish I could run or even want to run!! I do better when it's warm and I can go outside. Keep up the great work!
