19:49 FASTEST 2 MILES YET!!!!!

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

Yep, I ran my fastest 2 miles yet tonight. 19:49!!!! The first mile was 9:55, the second mile 9:54. I've been averaging about 20:30 lately.

I decided to try something new tonight and instead of strapping on my Vibram's, I laced up my fairly old Adidas sneakers. Whether the shoes, the pouring rain, the change in music, or just me pushing myself were the reason, I don't care. I rocked it out!! I truly love running in the rain and am always excited when I get the opportunity.

Note to self: Don't tie the sneakers so tight next time. Oww!!

Special thanks to SANDIEGOJOHN for his blog about not putting ourselves down and being proud of our accomplishments!! It's called "Knock it off, Spark Buddies. I mean it!" Thank you!!!

    Congrats! That's wonderful! I hit my fastest 2 miles yesterday! It was 24 minutes (and actually 1.98 miles), but I'm thrilled! And, I'm following SD John's advice & just celebrating. Yeah, me! And, yeah to you, too!
