Most of you from BBC know that I started running this year and was training myself for my first 5K on April 11th. I was doing very well and reached my goal well before my race day. However, it was unfortunate that I had to have my lap procedure the Friday before I was to run. I even asked my doctor if I could walk it but my husband shot that down real quick (Hater! lol). Needless to say I missed my first run and yesterday was my first day back in the trenches!
I went home at 3:00 feeling quite bubbly and I was like today's the day!! So I threw on my gym clothes, grabbed my water and towel then headed out the door. I must say I was really feeling myself! Ha! This will be a piece of cake-I mean it's only been 2 weeks since I ran and that 5K was becoming pretty easy to me. I walked into the gym feeling quite cocky!! Did a few stretches and punched in my settings and I was off! My legs were a bit stiff at first and then I turned up my iPod to my running music and I was all over it! 1K BAM! 2K BAM! 3K UMMMMM DAMN (head cocked to the side)!!!! I was seriously talking to Jesus from 3K on! It was BRUTAL! I was also doing sprints so I would take it down to a moderate jogging pace then crank that sucker up to where it looked like I was running from the cops or something! I was winded and panting but I made it by the skin of my azz!
I'm normally blasting rap and rock in my ears for running and then I finish off with The Climb by Miley Cyrus when I need that extra push! After I finally made it to 3K it was nothing but Miley and Jesus the rest of the way. I probably listened to that teenie bopper 8 times in a row! All and all my first day back was a success. I completed the 5K running the entire way but it was NOT pretty people! It was touch and go there for a while but I'd like to thank Jesus and Miley Cyrus for getting me through.
You guys ROCK!!!
