The Longest Mile
Mile #1 started with 5 minutes of walking. Then a 2 min run, 2 min walk interval. I finished mile #1 in 15 minutes.
Since it was an out-and-back and I was now warmed up, I decided to run the entire way back at a light pace. Mile #2 took 13 minutes.
The hardest mile was #1. It didn't really take me 15 minutes. It is pretty fair to say that it took me about two months, due to my procrastination.
I knew that I was much heavier and my legs were out of shape...and, and, and. Thus, that first mile was a long one.
But once I got out there, mile #2 was not really bad at all.
It was good to be out there again. I will do the Sun Run 5k or 10k in late January and see what else is coming after that.
