After trying on my wonderful new boots, I did go out for a walk/run.
I picked a new route through my condo complex, not realizing out hilly it was. On my second run, it was almost all uphill and I felt like I was going to die, but I did it. It was definitely harder last night, but I don’t see “hard” as a bad thing. When you run a 5K, you are going to have hills sometimes, it’s not going to be all flat.
One thing that was good is it was really cool outside. I definitely didn’t sweat as much. I’m really glad that I forced myself to go out and do it. I almost didn’t go due to work and getting home late.
It’s starting to get dark out early so I might be forced onto treadmill running more often. I just don’t feel secure running in the dark by myself.
