Did you see what I did there? Huh?
Well, anyway, bad humor aside, I have a problem. It's not really a problem as much as an obstacle. A problem is solved but an obstacle, you conquer those!
So this obstacle... it's a hill. A pretty steep one. It doesn't seem so bad in the car. :)
Today was day 2 of the hill. Friday I tried it for the first time. I huffed and puffed my way up the hill. I thought I would collapse at the top and couldn't figure out how I would get home. I just didn't think I would make it. But I pushed on, got to the top, and finished my walk.
Tonight I tried it again. My lungs are getting stronger, I pushed on, only had to stop once. That was not my fault though. Getting hit by a car would not have been positive to my journey :)
I got back to the bottom of the hill after going through a really nice neighborhood. When I got to the bottom, I had only one thing left to do. I had made a goal to jog/run from my apt to the complex entrance. So I started at the sign to the complex and jogged to my apt. It is a little more than a 1/2 mile. I jogged/ran non-stop to my apt. I just wanted to cry from pride!
I know I will be running the 5k. I can feel it.
But for now, with my body screaming at me, I am going to go to bed with my heating pad. Strength trainer with the trainer tomorrow :)
Get outside and enjoy the weather!
