This is a short little entry but an important one.
Today marks a day in the history of me and Gym that we have never had before. I have had some good cardio time, and I have had some great workouts. But tonight for the first time in my whole life I stayed on the treadmill for an hour. Non-stop, me and Mr Treadmill for 60 whole minutes. This may not sounds like a big deal but for me, I hit the wall that I always hit and broke through. Then I hit another wall...one I had never been to before and broke through it. It was much needed after and intense, stressful, depressing day.
The best part is that I owe that to my wonderful boyfriend...(if he can do an hour then I can too! I guess I have a competitive bone after all...) I think that the big picture is that if I am going to encourage him then I need to allow myself to be encouraged but more than anything out of this terrible yucky day I learned yet another thing, Not just that I can push more distance than ever before or that I can go 30 minutes further than I ever cared to try, but something that some people can never say about the person that they choose to spend forever with...and that is that Deryk inspires me. Even when days suck.
