I started with a brisk 5 minute walk and then alternated between 60 seconds of running and 90 seconds of walking. I kept telling myself that this program is probably too easy for a seasoned veteran such as myself.
I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG!!!!
My first running interval felt fine but the 60 seconds seemed to pass by very slowly. The next 60 second interval is when my feet (yes both of them) decided that maybe running is not what they want to do as I had some serious PF pain going on. I kept on. My 3rd interval my feet must have been speaking to my knees because they joined the pain train. The pain at this point was not too severe but it was enough for my mind to join in. I kept thinking....why am I even trying, I don't think I like this....blah blah blah. I was thankful that I had Baby Diva in the stroller so I could hang on for dear life. At that point I thought....
RUNNING IS INSANE AND STUPID
It wasn't until my Garmin showed that I was over 20 minutes into my half hour workout that I was able to remember why I love running and why I miss it so much. I shut off the negative nagging chatter in my brain and enjoyed the final part of the workout.
I am now icing my foot and stretching it out. I am going to show it who is boss. Ha! I think of all the injuries I have recovered from and I have to say that Plantar Fasciitis is the worst. As I said before I am getting really aggressive about taking care of it.
I am applauding the Chubby Hubby for getting up and doing his first day of the C25K. He did great!
