Running Day 3: I didn't.

That is, I got up, I had water and peanut butter, and I got dressed, including finally digging out my real running shoes, as opposed to my everyday sneakers, which I had been wearing.

And I got out of the house, too. I walked the seven minutes to Ocean Parkway, I ran for sixty seconds. I walked for 90. I then...ran for thirty seconds and that was that for the running. Not that I stopped. I walked about as far as I'd run on Tuesday, and I was out for just a bit longer.

I'm not sure why I had to do that. My legs are very stiff, of course, although I do warm up first. I'm currently thinking I'm just not used to the shoes, which are cushioned but designed for superpronators like me - very stiff. Which is a good thing, but I'm not used to them. So I'll wear them more often and GET used to them.

I'm not disappointed - disappointed would be giving up entirely. I walked at a moderate pace for 35 minutes. This is *good*.

It varies. Usually my definition is "more than I did," which is the habit I'm trying to break :).

Getting out of the house for something besides work is good. Keeping the condition of the house from getting worse is good, improving it is even better. Doing anything away from the computer is good. Doing something for my health is good.

I think I've gotten so far behind on things that I have trouble viewing the little steps as progress. I can work really hard and still feel way behind, especially with health issues. And of course that discourages me and makes me stop working on things, so I get behind again.
