Day 4: Three, fortyfive. June 1, 2007

Posted by Joe in running.

Friday. Got up at 5:56am today. I beat the alarm but wasn’t trying, Just happened. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself, but I feel better going to bed either at 10pm, or when I am tired. Last night it was 11pm (had to watch The Ultimate Fighter). There was a day when I used to wake up naturally at 6am – no alarm. I was younger, but also in great shape.

Anyway, I woke up and went for a quick run. Around the block again. It’s funny. Every time I put on my trainers and walk into the garage, I am afraid that this time I will run out of energy before I make it home. But I did it again, and this time I ran it in 3 minutes and 45 seconds. That’s 15 seconds faster than yesterday. Obviously this is not a lengthy cardio workout. At least it’s not the 20-30 minute run they recommend, but it is a start and is giving me confidence to keep going. My plan for next week is to tack on another block. We’ll see how that goes. Feeling good.
