I was supposed to start my training on Monday but it took me a few extra days to get my butt moving. So, for the first time in 24 days, I ran. It started out painfully as my knee felt really bad. (My left knee is the only thing that ever hurts!!) But, after about a half mile, the pain went away and my run went surprisingly well. I only ran about three miles but I could have run further. I just did not want to push it too much. This journey is a marathon, not a sprint.
Along with training for this marathon, I also want to get down to about 145 pounds before the race. That means losing about 20 pounds. That might be harder than the marathon!
