Today, I am supposed to do the 1.5 mile. However, my schedule has gotten mixed because I have had to be away from home. I may need to switch up and wait do it tomorrow. Everything else has been changed a bit. I really don't like to make routine changes, but life doesn't work around me I need to learn to adapt more. Another reason this challenge is good for me.
Thanks for celebrating with me and encouraging me to keep going! And great tip about the music.. I get too "in my head" without it so I use Pandora on my phone. I'm gonna see if they have any running stations that I can add.

That's awesome, if you use music to run, use a playlist with a faster tempo and you will cut time. I changed my music and went from 11:12 to a 10:27 minute 3 mile run! I couldn't believe it!

That's amazing! To be that much faster even with the stopping - can't wait to see how well you do next time!
I was fiddling with my Endomondo on 8/24 and saw that my fastest 5k of 37:54 was completed in March 2011, when I weighed 23 pounds heavier. I set a goal that in 30 days I would beat that time.
Yesterday I set out for my run, not intending it to be "THE" run, but I challenged myself to run until my phone told me it was 3 miles. I started the clock and began to warm up, and then started a jog. Had my dog with me and she of course had to stop and do her business a few times. Somehow, even with the walking warmup and the dog I ended up with my personal best 5k of 35:00!
Now I'm going to run again tomorrow without the dog and see if I can beat it!
