I want to make an edit to my post from yesterday...About a MILE in I wanted to give up...not a minute in....lol. I have issues, but I am happy to report that they are not as severe as I had previously reported.
I woke up this morning and I am still feeling pretty accomplished! oh and SORE. The last half mile on the treadmill I was really starting to feel cramping in my left leg. I kept going though! Even though while I was dealing with the pain and nearing the end of the finish line I set out for myself. My husband came into the basement and just stood there. THEN he lit a cigarette! Are you kidding me? I told him breathlessly that he needed to go outside, so he opened the door and stood there and tried to talk to me. I couldn't breath and to be honest...whether he meant it or not I took it personally. I LASHED out at him. I said, "Are you trying to watch me fail?" He looked at me dumbfounded and stepped outside. I felt bad about it when I was through, but in that moment that's exactly how it felt.
He didn't think I could do it, though. He has his ways of telling me that without being rude. When I start to go into the basement to train he laughs and says go do your 16th of a 5k. He isn't being mean, he thinks he's funny. I need him to support me in this, but I get it. He has seen this a million times because I have done it a million times. I am determined that there will not be a million and one.
Today is a day off workouts for me and I am glad because I need to rest. Tomorrow, I will work on improving my mile time. We are set to get MORE snow this week, so today and tomorrow will be days of running errands that may not be possible to complete during the week.
132 days to Komen.
