That is where I'm learning to run--on the SLOW road. I'm starting to attack my deployment goal of working out/running. I cannot believe how pathetic I am in my present state. I was once an active, athletic person. Where did she go?
I will not even admit how short my stamina is, how slow I run, or even the tiny distances that exhaust me. Thankfully I have acceptance that this will be a long (and slow) journey to train my body. I am not in a race, and I don't care if I am always slow. I know that I have to put in the time, effort, and self discipline if I want to succeed. I am just trying to convince myself that each day it will get easier. Eventually I will be able to run further, for longer time periods, and maybe I'll actually enjoy it. One day I will get there.
And I have to say, that while I'm really out of shape and cannot do much now, it still feels really good to be working my body and challenging it.
