I am so excited. Today's workout was a great surprise for me. I was so stoked at the end of the workout. I made it to the Y tonight and wanted to get on the treadmill. Honestly I was a bit nervous as in the past when I have made an effort to walk, for instance a 5K, I would start out and my legs from my knees down would be killing me at about a tenth of a mile in. They would start to feel as if I had a million needles busting out of my legs from the inside and it was so incredibly painful. Then the tops of my feet would start to go numb and I would have to make a mental decision to continue walking and just walk thru the pain. Well, tonight a breakthru. I got on the treadmill and put in the profile to do a 5K and to my surprise I did not have the leg pain that I typically have. PRAISE THE LORD. I do have a bit of heal pain, not sure if it is plantar fasciitis or if it is plantar warts. Last night I started to duct tape my heals just in case it is plantar warts. I am going to suffocate them to get rid of the pain.
I am just so stoked that I feel like I am making a breakthru that I have been wanting to have for a couple years now. I know if I start to lose some of this weight some of these issues will resolve themselves, it is just slow baby steps. Making it thru this half marathon is going to be a good thing, who knew that this would get me motivated for my fitness health. I was thinking I was doing this as a challenge, and that it is.
Just praising the Lord for His goodness. Tomorrow is a new day and will make it back to the Y to see what I can accomplish tomorrow.
