What you gon' do with all that junk?All that junk inside your trunk?
That is what was going through my head during my entire run today. It seems that all 9lbs I gained over the holidays went straight to my ass. I could tell while I was running that there was a lot more jiggle. Note for next time, I must wear sausage casing undergarments to prevent this.
Right now I may be heavy and jiggle like Jell-O, but I am happy to say that finally broke my 1 mile wall! I didn't stop at 1 mile today. I ran a total of 2.26 and I only walked two blocks. I know I didn't break any distance records, but it is progress and every week I hope to go a bit further.
This milestone was a big one for me. No matter how many miles I am in shape to run, the first one is always the hardest. Now that I know I can make a full mile physically, I know I can push myself to the next level. I have about 6 weeks to work up to 3 miles until my first 5K of the new year. It is totally doable.
