My. Lungs. Were. On. F-I-R-E!!

I ran tonight for the first time in 543 months, or at least it felt like it. I did make it a whole 3/4 of a mile before I had to walk which is about a 1/2 mile more than I thought. :)

My lungs ,on the other hand ,were spent by the 1/4 mile mark! What's up with that! I was up to 4 miles this time last year.

4 MILES!

I may not be able to move tomorrow...seriously. Things are going to hurt, I just know it, and it's not going to be pretty.

Well GOOD FOR YOU for going 3/4 of a mile! I know that's more than I could do right now. I was up to 3 miles a few years ago. Now I'd be happy to get to one or two!

Well I am sitting here eating a whole bag of dark chocolate M&M's and totally cheering for you - maybe I need to get off my youknowwhat and go exercise :)
Way to go you cute thing!

Good for you! You made it exactly 3/4 of a mile longer than I would have!!

I'm running now, too! I'm up to four minutes at a time...alternating, 4 running/2 walking for 30 minutes. Eventually I'm hoping to run the whole 30. Good for you getting back into it! I'm not sure I'll ever run four miles, though!

Oh, 4 miles is like a marathon to me! I rejoice with you!
