It was gray. It was cold. My knees hurt. But hey! There’s the Statue of Liberty and there was a peewee football team practicing out on one of the piers. I listened to The Woman in Black on audio (perfect book for the weather) and generally felt accomplished, even with my slow slow speed. I feel like it doesn’t really matter how slow you go, though, if your heart is racing and your muscles hurt. Eventually I’ll go faster.
I hate cardio machines and I love my weight lifting and pilates classes, but I need a way to get more cardio in my life. Hence, the running. I’ve been talking about it for a long time, so it felt good today to finally just do something.
