RUNNING!

Ok everyone... just so you didn't think I dropped the whole thing already... we've been pretty busy with getting the house cleaned up and organized and now trying to pack everything up... I only have two weeks to get packed up... anyways, that's a story that I'll tell at a later date...

Christopher has been doing absolutely awesome... almost sleeping through the night. I went to bed around 9:30 last night and the first time I woke up from hearing a noise was 4:30!!! Both Jon and Matt slept all night and even Chris did... He was up and ready for food at 4:30... so I fed him... told Chad to hold down the fort... got dressed and went for a walk/run. The total time was about 19 minutes. I walked for 5 then ran for 1 1/2 minutes. I wanted to go longer but after a minute and a half I couldn't do anymore. So I listened to my body and walked it off for 2 minutes... then ran again for 1 1/2 and walked for a couple... the I tried one more run period but could only manage and 1 1/4 minutes... my legs were like rubber when I got home... but when you think about it - I ran for almost six minutes... the longest I've run in a long time... maybe my lifetime... my legs are sore tonight so going to bed now that I've finished my homework...

Hey, that's great!!! It's always best to take baby steps and build on it from there when it comes to exercise.

Honestly, back in November I was so out of shape I could barely run 90 seconds without getting winded. And I used to be an athlete, many moons ago. Now I can run at least 6.5 miles (my longest distance to date) and feel great afterward!

Just keep at it, and it will get easier!! Trust me! :-)
