Maybe after Saturday january 14, 2012 I will be able to say that I am a runner but today I feel like a winner. I remember when I indicated that I wanted to run the 5K. Back then I was lucky if could run for three minutes without dying but it is true that practice make perfect. On December 31, 2011 I was able to run for 45 minutes on the treadmill, that is about 45 more minutes than I could when I stated. LOL. It was for about 3.1 mile or a 5K and it was amazing. I could not believe I had done it. By January 5, 2012 I was able to run the same distance in 42 minutes. The race is on saturday but whatever the out come I am a WINNER! Going to change into my running clothes now as I have to keep my training up. Don't forget join me in the Race for the Cure on Saturday January 14, 2012 at 7 am eastern time. It is in the Bahamas but you can join me virtually. Let us do this!
Just a quick note...I just got back from training with my work colleagues and I ran for the 45 mins for the first time on the road as opposed to the treadmill. It is a lot more work but it feels great. My song list... I just moved to the rhythm of the Black Eyed Peas and I was good to go. After the 5 K my next goal is to train for the half Marathon in January 2013 so by June I need to be able to run for 7-8 miles straight.
I weighted in this morning and I am still a stubborn 210 lbs. I feel smaller but the scale remains the same. My short term goal is to break the 200lb mark by Feb 14 2012. My gift of love to myself. I will let you know how that turns out. lol
