good Barefoot - C25K Wk1 Day1 - Part 1 1 mi 00:20 20:00 pace

Decided to start the C25K a week early just so that I could repeat it if I need to. First half, no problem. Slight pain in ankles after .5 mile, but finished anyway. I was reminded why I don't walk in the daylight. The people driving by laughing and making comments, normally doesn't bother me, but they make it unpleasant. Not sure what it is so funny to see a heavy woman trying to get healthy and fit. Whatever! They won't deter me. On a positive note, I finally started sweating. That's always good.

    If it helps any...Often, when I see an out-of-shape runner out in my neighorhood I quietly cheer them on from behind the wheel of my car. I probably should hang my head out the window and shout some encouragement but I'm shy. So remember, there could always be a fellow runner telling you, "Great job! Keep going! You're going to do great things!" from the interior of their car, because I've done it dozens of times without my neighbors knowing :)

    Rosmery, what you are doing demonstrates a level of courage and self-respect that I'm not sure those people in the cars would understand. Well done on a successful first day!

    That's great, Mary. I do the same, except to say "You go girl/boy!" :-) The few times I have gone out in the day time I get some hellos, some waves, but usually I get laughter, looking away and laughing (which is worse) and I've gotten one comment yelled at me about the barefoot... "are you too fat for shoes?" I guess it makes them feel better. It doesn't help me any, so I prefer the dark of night. :-) ... but on the brightside, the support here is wonderful. Thank you all!

    And those fools should never deter you, Ros. You're a champ for making the good choice to do what you're doing and I'm very proud of you already. Way to kick ass on your first day!
