Another goal met!


Friday, June 22, 2012

I woke up this morning with the idea of running/walking around one of our area lakes. I used to walk around this lake when I did my training for the Susan G Komen 3 Day walk. I always told myself that some day I would run around this entire lake instead of walking. I knew the round trip was around five miles, so I planned on running a minimum of 3 miles. If I could go further I would, but eventually I wanted to be able to run the entire route.

There are many, many hills on this route. I had forgotten how many. They never really bothered me a whole lot when I was just walking. I started out and was feeling winded right off the bat. I reminded myself that it was the humidity and that it would soon pass. It passed and I got into my groove. The first mile passed and I was feeling pretty good. By mile three I figured I could keep on going for at least another mile.

Mile four passed and I worked through the thought of stopping. Next thing I knew, my Runtastic app was telling me that I had reached mile 5! WooHoo! I was not yet back to the beginning, but I knew I could make it to the end.

I made it back to where I had started in one hour and eight minutes...5.6 miles later! I had actually done it. My goal was to try to run the entire route by the end of July, but I actually did it today...on my first try!

My next goal is to run a 10K!
