After months and months of procrastinating, not running, but plenty of belly button gazing, I actually went out for a run yesterday.
Oh. Em. Gee.
It was painful. The bunnies that were out for their evening meal made me smile though, and provided momentary distraction. I am starting right back from scratch at Week 1 of Couch to 5k. I did get a bit wrapped up in myself and ended up going further than I meant to by the half way point. It was quite nice though – the fresh air did me the world of good.
What surprised me was that my ankles and feet are sore. I wasn’t expecting that. I know it shouldn’t be surprising really, as I haven’t done any significant load bearing activity for a long time and my ankles and feet have lost their running memory temporarily. I don’t remember feeling like this on my first round last year. I’m not sure what weight I was back then – I’ll have to go and find out.
My next outing will be on Friday. I hope the distraction bunnies are out again.
