McFatty Monday - C25K Run #1

20 minutes removed from my first workout.  My legs are jello, my lungs burn, and I'm still sweating a little even though I've rinsed off in the shower. 

It feels like success. 

Seriously.  I was almost discouraged by the cold in the basement.  I was almost discouraged by the fact that my legs hurt mere moments into my warm up walk.  But I made myself keep going, and I am proud.  For the first time in probably years, I set out to work out and I actually did it.  It's these little successes I know I am going to need early on in order to keep myself going. 

Here's hoping the pain of tomorrow and the following day don't put a dent in my plans to keep this up!
