After not running for a month and then trying to run I have discovered that
oh and that
I did a HIIT run on the treadmill yesterday because I decided to play it safe and run on the treadmill in my house because I wasn't quite sure what was going to happen.....( my leg could fall off, I could get lost, it is hot outside, I like climate control, treadmill seems safe considering two days ago I thought I had an alien heart....there were a lot of excuses).
Well there was a lot of loud mouth breathing and an embarrassing amount of sweating. I would appear to be rather out of shape. But the good news is I can still run....kinda like riding a bicycle I guess and I did manage to run 4.66 miles in 45 minutes. So to any Wild West Relay members who may be reading this I apologize for the great amount of time I will spend on the course during my legs. Good thing we are starting at the earliest possible time. Yay for 5 a.m. start times!!!! Oh and I also did Pilates for an hour because I figure a strong core is the only thing that may save me at this point.
