Well, I got up this morning and ran again - I didn't drink wine last night (though I ate an entire burrito @ Willy's - like Moe's) and I ran for 20 straight minutes and walked for another 10 - OK, you can stop laughing now, please see "square 1" reference - this is really good for me! I worked out 4x this week and am feeling really proud of myself. Thank you again for the comment "remember how badly square 1 sucks" to keep myself going - that is helping a lot. I honestly could have kept running for another 10 (I think) but I didn't want to push it and think I have to keep at that pace until I'm really ready to be there. So, in other words, now I know I can run for a straight 20 and keep going strong and it shouldn't be an issue going forward. Weird psychological games I have to play to keep it up, whatever works.
Hopefully this will be me soon:
Have a GREAT weekend webfriends!
