Run…don’t walk!

Standard

Week four day one completed. Today was a day I had been dreading. I have crossed a threshold in my training. I ran over double what I walked. This was a huge accomplishment in three/four weeks coming from a girl who got winded walking to the mailbox.

Today I was breathing better. This is another huge thing for me. Let me give you a few reasons. I have asthma. Its not horrible, but it is there. I also recently moved from sea level to almost 6,000 feet. In Colorado you have to take time to get used to breathing again. The air is thinner here, and so my training is helping not only my fitness but my lungs as well! I feel stronger, not only in my lungs but my legs and core as well. I did a plank yesterday for over 60 seconds. Then I did supermans with almost no trouble.

I am just so encouraged by everyone reading my blog and cheering on my progress. It really means a lot to know that someone out there is reading this. Thank you. Thank you for supporting me.
