It's Been a Long, Long Time
I am ashamed to admit that I missed two weeks of running. Two weeks ago I was frantically preparing for and attending the National Conference, last week I was preparing for job applications. Add that to the fact that I usually run in the evenings and T was working late so I had no one to watch ST. Anyway, I was feeling pretty bad about it.

But, today I ran two miles and it felt great. I am pleased to say that I ran almost 10 minutes without stopping to walk! TEN minutes! Just a month ago I could barely go 90 seconds without feeling like I was going to die, so this is big for me. After my initial ten minute stint, I continued the run with four minute run, one minute walk intervals. I ran two miles in 23 minutes.

The bad thing is that my stupid little Sony armband Walkman is dead. T used to use it when he was at the gym and said that it kept fading in and out, so he eventually just stopped taking it. When I started running, I popped in new batteries and it was working fine. Until today. It died about 1/4 mile into my run, and so I spent the rest of the time listening to my own breathing, which was not very motivational. Maybe now is the time to spring for this. (Even T admits that this is the absolute peak of coolness.)

    What about an iPod Shuffle? They're cheaper and I think better for activities like running.

    Just found your blog after you commented on mine ... glad to find you!
