They say the first day is the hardest, but I have a feeling that this first day is going to be the easiest. Refreshed and rejuvenated off my Christmas vacation in Switzlerland, these first two miles came pretty easily. I thought about doing another one or two, but remembered this is a marathon, not a sprint – and decided to walk 2 more miles instead of running them for a total of 4 (but I’m only going to count miles I actually run).
Audiobooks are my best friend here. I enjoy reading, and getting lost in a book makes the time not so bad. If anyone reading this has any excellent audiobook suggestions, I’m all ears. As I mentioned in the original post, I just got through reading David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me and I could definitely use another page turner.
Anyway, I’m feeling great. Even though I just came off of vacation it was pretty active, as we snowboarded practically every day. 257 pounds seems like so much but I feel fine, it’s even more weird that I can run 2 miles at around 10 min/30 seconds which isn’t the fastest but like dang for day one it doesn’t feel too bad. I’m also purposely blurring the run maps. This is public, and I don’t want anyone to be able to look this up and see where or when I run.
Hubris is the name of the game today. I’m feeling like finding the will to post is going to be harder than getting after it every day. Time will tell.
