I took a couple months off from running to try to recover from my foot injury from July. I just kept reaggrivating it. I needed to let it heal. So, on Monday I started over on C25K. I don't see it as a step back, since I had made it to week 10 of the 10K Trainer. I see it as a review.
It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. We started off faster, and it was great. It was hard though. My brain knew I should be able to go longer. My body said no. I was sluggish. It felt good to get moving again.

Today was easier running. I was a little sad when I had to start walking. That is, until I got to run 6. Then I was about done. It was a balmy 21° and windy. I was so cold from my elbows to my hands. They turned red from the cold.

My view of my running partner/hubby.
My smile when day 2 was done. I always try to keep a smile on my face when I run. It keeps it fun.
The final day of week 1. It was easier, in a way. I usually get an energy burst at the end. This time, when we got to the last run, I tried to go faster. My legs just wouldn't obey my brain. I was thrilled to finish week 1. I love week 2 and am excited to move on.
