Today was cold (45 degrees) and misting rain, but I still got out there and did it! I thought about going to the rec center to run on the treadmill, but then I decided to make the best out of the weather conditions. The inside of my shins are REALLY sore right now, and so that made it really tough to run. Mathis assures me that this is normal for someone who's a total beginner. I'm trying not to let it get me down, but it's slightly annoying -- I don't want to push it too hard at the beginning and make the soreness worse, but I'm also a little frustrated with how hard it makes it to run.
On a more positive side, I've spent the past few days reading lots of running blogs for encouragement. I've listed a few of them in my sidebar to the right. I absolutely LOVE to read people's experiences and thoughts about running. It really motivates me when I read about others who have accomplished their running goals. :)
