Wrap it up, I'll take it

Got home from work, long day, tired, blah blah blah..  I was planning a run, the same route I scoped out with a walk yesterday, 6km.  On the way home I was telling my carpool pal that I was tired and just wanted to lounge on the couch, and he said 'just stay home, relax, you've had a hard day'.  I walked in the front door, directly upstairs, changed and headed out.
 

I don't run much outside so I thought I would do 1 minute run, 1 minute walk and see how it felt.  From the minute I started my run my lungs were screaming, I couldn't catch my breath and my heart rate was high but I thought HTFU and kept going. Not every run is going to feel good and relaxed.  I just arrived home and checked my stats.  I actually ran 6km in the same time it took me to run my 5km race 2 years ago.  Nice, I will only get faster from here.

Now I stretch.

Sukhi - I'm going to make you run next time, 1 min on, 1 min off, just like I did.

Johan - thanks for always being there with a supportive word. After reading your PFG blog I have been incredibly inspired! I'm sure you must have felt like this alot when you started and your transformation is absolutely amazing.
