How soon you forget all of the pings and pain that you pushed through early on in training.  After only a half mile, the muscles in my lower legs ached.  Almost a welcomed feeling.  Your first thought is to stop, but then you remember.  In the past it took to get to mile 3 sometimes before that pain went away.

That was my cue to push through it.

Today with the wind chill well below 0 Fahrenheit, I gathered up my gumption and headed to the Y.  Not being a member and not wanting to spend precious time filling out forms, I bargained with the clerk to let me do the treadmill today and I’ll come back with forms filled out tomorrow.

He agreed.

Because I am starting from 3+ years of doing nothing, I walked 2 miles at a pace of 3.4 miles per hour.  Could have gone another mile but not going to push it for today.

It felt pretty good and I just kept telling myself, “Be patient it will all come back in time.”

I don’t plan to spend all of my time at the Y, but on days like this, I’ll now have some where to go that is close to home.

Will be back out there soon enough.  For now, the treadmill is my friend.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
