When 2 Minutes Feel Like 20

I am on day 6 of week 2 of an 8 week training program.  Did you get all that?  It is to work non-runners up to jogging 2 miles.  The program begins with running 5 minutes, jogging 30 seconds.  Me, with my lungs that can only be compared to a 90 year old, was sucking air hard those first few days.  Then the program took the jogging up to 1 minutes.  Okay, harder but not as bad as I thought it might be.  And then today happened.  Today the program kicked the jogging up to 2 minutes.  I was nervous heading out.  How would I ever be able to run 2 minutes?  Those 2 minutes were feeling like 20 to me.  But you know what?!  I did it!  I ran my 2 minute segments!!  Yes, I was beyond worn out by the end but I did it.  Yeah for me!

Part of the bike trail I walk/jog (= wog?...) on.

Passed the tennis courts...

Passed baseball practice...

And what appeared to be a football camp at SOU?...

More of the football camp.
Can't wait to do it all again tomorrow!
