First Ten Minutes of Anything Suck

I've mentioned here a few times one of my fellow triathlete bloggers, Tracy (a.k.a. Wil) from ThroughTheWall has mentioned the first ten minutes of everything suck and then it's all good. I think of this often but yesterday was a little different. Being the first serious run in two weeks after being sick, the legs felt great from the first stride. Wow, it's not very often where it felt great from the start. The lungs felt sucky from the first stride and at the ten minute mark they felt even more sucky. In fact they never felt good and so here's an addendum to Tracy's Law of 10 Minutes.

Some days certain things will suck longer than ten minutes and may suck the whole time.
