comes a point when you just start running, where your body begins to
hurt. For me personally, I feel like there is a difference in being in
good shape, and being in running shape. I can rock Turbo Fire, but
running is tough for me. Is that just me? When I did my first
Beachbody workout it was Insanity. I remember being in week 3 and
literally could not get out of bed without rolling out. My back hurt so
bad. My legs were shaky walking down the steps. Everything HURT. I
wanted to quit, but never did. Because eventually the pain goes away.
September 3rd was when I started running (again) and this is my 6th run
since then. (That heat spell we had kept me inside for a bit) I have
been averaging about 3 miles per run, taking me about 40 minutes. Today
I had just left the alley behind my house (that would be the picture of
one of our neighborhood cats, Oz cat) and was at 3 miles. I turned
right, and was just about to take another right to head home. Then I
thought hell with it. So I went straight, and ran down another alley,
then back home. I was feeling it. In my lower back, my shines, and my
feet. I decided that this was good. I ran the furthest I ever had, and
I'm damn proud of myself. 3.55 miles in 44 minutes. But this is
the time I usually quit. I quit because it hurts, and I get
uncomfortable, then I just say "I don't like to run." "Running is not
for me." I can't, and won't stop now. Keep me accountable. Make
sure I remember that my body will adjust. I can't expect results
without being a little uncomfortable along the way, just like Insanity.
