Today is Wednesday, so it was time for the weekly walk with my Best Friend. Since I did so well with Week 2 yesterday, I decided it was time to move on to Week 3. My friend got a head start walking down the path, while I got my iPod together. I did just fine with the 1st 90 second interval run. The next 3 minute run was a little tough, but not impossible. I kept saying to myself I’ve run 3 whole miles several times, I know I can do this. The second set of runs were a lot harder, but I kept pushing. I remembered the joy of running past the skinny people walking, even if it was only for 3 minutes at time. It was also cool to see people cheering on the “fat girl running.” People gave me a thumbs up and one plus size girl grabbed her heart and smiled. Like I always say, if I can do it, anybody can. Running feels so good, I can’t believe I let myself get back to the point that I had to start training all over…. When I finished all of the running intervals, I was so tired. When I turned around and looked for my friend, she was nowhere in sight. I figured that she would want to do the whole 3 miles so I kept walking. I slowed down and waited for a few minutes at the halfway turn around point. When she got there she told me she wished I hadn’t done the whole walk and she kept looking for me to turn around. I told her I kept turning around looking for her to wave at me to come back. Neither one of us really wanted to do the whole thing, but that’s the great thing about working out outdoors, whether you feel like quitting or not, you still have to get back to the car. And eventually, we did.
