Well, I am 1 pound down this week, so that IS a victory, but this morning I had an awesome NSV:
I ran a 9-minute mile for 4.25 miles this morning!!!!!!!! It took me 40 minutes to run that 4.25 miles, and I am over the moon about it! Granted, my breathing was pretty rough at the end and my lungs were feeling it, but I usually don't push myself on the treadmill. I basically set my treadmill speed about 6.7 mph and kept with it. Gosh it felt great....I had a few minutes of mental toughness where I had to tell myself to keep going, that my legs could do it, my lungs could take it.
So, yeah...I need to get outside to run, though. Treadmills just aren't the same!
