Guess who just jogged 1 MILE NON-STOP…..

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Me, that’s who! Yes, this girl just JOGGED 1 ENTIRE MILE NON-STOP. I am so happy I can barely control my emotions, the last 1/10th of the mile I was smiling from ear to ear and I did it in 9:59. You guys have no idea what this means to me. I logged onto Spark late today and saw that it was National Run Day so I was like I am going to jog as far and as longs as I can without stopping. Well, so far I have only been able to run .25 miles without stopping so I was going to push myself to do .50 miles, a ˝ mile came and I told myself to keep pushing just to see how far I could go….around .70 miles my calf muscles started to cramp a little but I was like I made it this far and I am going to make it all the way and guess what I DID IT!!!!! I have read so many times that it is mind over matter and I so believe that! I jogged outside up and down my street (I didn’t feel like driving to the track) so I jogged a slight hill a few times. I could not believe that I actually did it so I got in my car not 1 but 2 times and set the trip mileage to zero and drove back and forth up the street to make sure that I really did 1 mile and yep I did! I even had my husband to do it, LOL. I am in disbelief.

I have so many SparkFriends that are runners that I look up to and that have given me advice along the way, I THANK EACH OF YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! I just had to share this news with you all….I feel so good I may just go out and jog another mile. Today I have learned that all things are possible, this (to me) is a dream come true! I will be jogging a 5K in no time.

Believe and achieve, I sure have.
Blessings to all.

    Awesome News! I remember that first time I jogged my mile without stopping - of course, it was only two weeks ago! Isn't it the best feeling? Your time is rocking!

    That is FANTASTIC and I know you must be floating on cloud nine. I have to tell you how really well you did because 9:59 is a wonderful time for any runner. I just wrote a blog yesterday because I was so thrilled to have reached a sub-thirty 5K. It was on the treadmill though and that is a lot easier than running outside. It took me two years to reach that speed, so my hat is off to you. You will be smokin' in a 5K.

    I'm so excited for you and I know EXACTLY how you feel because I ran this morning without stopping too!!! WAY TO GO GIRL!

The last time I went running was 10 + months ago, and it was not pretty. I decided to go running this morning because I haven't lost any weight or inches doing workout videos and eating right for the past month. I'm pulling out all the stops so today it was running.

You know what - I went 1.28 miles in 18 minutes. That's a 14 minute pace but I did it! And you did it - at a 10 minute pace no less! That is awesome! Surprise runners REPRESENT!!!

  Well done and thanks for sharing. I have been trying to do the running thing for a few months. I started with 1 min run and 2 min walk fast for about 20-30 mins 2- 3 times a week. The last time I ran it was really hard so I was doubting if I would ever be a "runner". Yesterday I went running and it was amazing!!!!! I ran 2 mins with 1 min fast walk for 20 mins. The most amazing thing was that I was not focussing on the difficulty of running, my mind was free..... I enjoyed the views (lake, birds, planned dinner etc. It was like meditating.
My goal is to run non stop for 20 mins; not sure how far that is.
