Body Parts Bingo
Major breakthrough. I RAN THREE MILES! I can't say it was easy or fun. Every part of me protested during the workout: right arch, right hamstring, neck, lower back, left arch, right shoulder, and so on. It became a game to guess which body part would start aching next. And it was depressing to realize that I used to go five miles in the same time it now takes me to run three. But since I'll never be that age again, I might as well stop dwelling on the glory years and celebrate my current achievements, no matter how small. I'm going to backtrack during the next few days, though. I'll just do long walks and shorter runs until I'm ready to tackle this distance again. Still, I'm making progress!
