i did it!
instead of just procrastinating, i did it.
i had trouble sleeping last night and was lying in bed, tossing and turning, and finally i looked at the clock - 5:42. so i got up, put on my jogging pants and runners, and went out there.
didn't follow the official c25k plan for a first run, as i've run before, and i also knew that if i took the time to look it up, i'd be done. i'd be sitting at the computer, and then it would suddenly be 7 o'clock and i'd have to make breakfast for my son. i just looked at the official plan now, and you're supposed to have a warm-up walk that lasts a full 5 minutes, which i didn't do. i walked to the end of our street, then ran 2 blocks, then walked crossing the street, then ran a couple more blocks, etc. all in all, 6 chunks of running, a small amount of walking, 2km over 20 minutes.
amazingly my left foot feels fine, while my right foot felt a little funny. hope i wasn't favouring the left. i didn't even think of it till i was almost home. we'll see how they feel tomorrow.
next time i will wear my bright yellow shell instead of a dark grey one though. i must have been invisible in the dark!
eta: i just checked the c25k plan and what i did was more like week 4. can i skip ahead?
and now i must stretch!
