GREAT day for me physically. I woke up and weighed myself... lost another pound. Tonight was supposed to be an "off night" but I felt really compelled to run. I discovered the gym here at my apartments. Great little area with a treadmill. Holy Moly. I am not sure exactly which factors played into my success but I RAN at 4.7 speed most of the time and went 1.7 miles.. running. No stopping. No walking (except the warm up and cool down.) I didn't have this kind of endurance when I was 115 lbs in high school. The other people in the gym were watching me and whispering, hopefully saying, " wow.. the fat girl can RUN" lol. It was amazing. I am so proud of myself. I told myself I can do something and it is really happening.
On a not-so happy note, I think I have runner's knee. I have all the symptoms and my knee hurts like a female dog. Ice, elevation, and ibuprofen. :) Ta ta!
