I have been humbled by the shortest, slowest run ever!

Well, I did it! I ran 2 miles with stop breaks on a soccer field. 8:20 pace

GOOD news:
zero fracture pain. no tendon pulls. Nothing scary.

BAD news:
*I have no right calf strength. It feels like running with half a calf. It got easier as I ran some.
*GRAVITY sucks ass!
*I feel like a load of bricks
*I SWEAT at 8:20 pace. I don't sweat at 7 pace normally. UGH!

I thought I would feel a little lighter being that I'm 100 f"ing pounds but apparently not!

So I have my work cut out for me. I need more calf and more ass. It will happen with my daily running but I'll keep at the strength training too. Here's a photo recap of how to have fun on wet turf:
Stretching that shit.
Back and forth

Shirt had to go. Can't dress worth shit. 
Cold and wet

That felt good
If there is a pole I will find it!

My mom and partner in crime!

Overall I'm stoked. I get to run daily and get stronger. I'm so happy I can run again!! I don't care how fast. I'm glad I have running shoes on. I'll get better. It's all good loves!



  1. Hey Girl, I am very proud of you. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!

  2. Whos taking all the pictures? was it your mom? why wasn't she running?

    good to see you running again.

  3. thanks guys. Ya, my mom ran a little and then pulled the "I'm 60, I can't run like that" card. But she's getting back out there today. Normally we swim together every day so I figured while I'm slow she can join me running. And ya she takes pictures.

  4. Gravity does suck! Sean laughed at me one time for saying "why is walking down stairs so hard if I have 9.81m/s^2 acting in my favor?!?" Glad you're back running :-)
