Well, it's been a big break for me. . .I have been struggling a little cuz of a nasty head cold that moved into my lungs a little. I wanted to make sure my body was up to being pushed again. Today I felt motivated and headed to the gym to hit the treadmill. I ran about 5 minutes and my lungs felt great!! No shortness of breath at all, however my calves HURT like crazy~ Especially my right leg. So I walked at a comfortable pace for about 30 total. It will be a slow process of getting my muscles used to running again. I am also hoping to incorporate some quality lap swimming where I can focus on improving my strokes as well as building stamina. I just have to wait until I can afford a pass at the OU fitness/aquatic center. It's like $70 but for $20 more I can get a family pass and then Bryan can go with me. Eventually I want to pick up a nice road/speed bike, but for now running will be enough.
I REALLY want a new pair of Vibrams though!!! They have a new style out that is similair to the Bakiilla but it laces up & they fit me REALLY nicely. They have them in a super cute lilac purple! I ran in my Nike's today and I think that's one reason my legs hurt so bad. My Treksports are good, but the new ones are specifically designed for comfort while running. My Treksports rub on my heal unless I tape my heal, so that kinda stinks!
Anyways, hopefully I won't have any more set backs and I can really start of 2012 focusing on getting into top shape.
