I ran 2.04 miles, without stopping, in just under 25 minutes. That may not seem like much to those of you who run regularly, but as this is my second day back in the saddle, I’m way pumped. That’s a 12-minute mile! Not too shabby.
I will say, though, that this was MUCH more difficult than day one. After about the first mile, I was fighting a side and shoulder cramp the rest of the way. I didn’t think I would be able to keep running, but I focused on the music (along with some mental yelling at myself) and made it all the way. When I finished, I was really dizzy (I did sprint the last block) and felt like I had some major heartburn. Can running give you heartburn? That seems odd.
I figure I’ll keep this route all next week and then a quarter mile at a time.
Now back to avoiding shoving my face. Running seems to have made me extremely hungry and I could eat one of everything right about now.
