I guess it didn't take all month

Thursday, December 03, 2009


As in, like, an entire mile, all at once, without ever stopping or walking or even thinkng "oh my god I'm so tired," lol. I DID IT!!!!!!!

I had hit about 8 minutes straight, and I thought, "I'm just going to keep saying '2 more minutes' to myself and see how that goes." And then I got through my 9th minute, and thought, "well, I'm feeling good, and 2 minutes isn't very long. So I'll just keep going!" And when I got to 11 minutes, well, it would have been stupid to not hold out for the last 20 seconds of the mile. But of course, I like keeping things even, so I finished out the minute.

I ran for 12 minutes at a 5.3mph pace, covering 1.06 miles!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm so so so so proud of myself!!! This had been a goal for so long, and it was SO HARD for many months. And now... I can do it! I've done it!!! I CAN RUN A MILE!!!

    Congrats!! You'll be out there doing 2 miles in no time! About 7 years ago, I could barely do a mile under 15 minutes (and absolutely HATED running) and I just did my first half marathon this year in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Just keep doing what you're doing.. 2 more minutes..2 more steps.. it adds up!
