I RAN for more than 2 minutes!


Friday, March 08, 2013

Once in a while I've been doing run/walk intervals on the treadmill. I would walk for 5 minutes to warm up and then run for 2 minutes, walk for 2 minutes until I was done. Last week I actually ran 8 minutes straight to Bon Jovi's "Runaway," which is the only song that I really get the urge to run to! I saw my trainer at the gym and told him (since I was so proud of myself) and he said it's all in the mind.

So today I decided to run for as long as I could without stopping. It ended up being 4 minutes so I figured I would run for 4 minutes and then walk for 2 minutes. I did that for a while and then near the end I ran for 8 minutes again (To "Runaway" of course!) I finished in 44:12, which is my best time yet! I even thought I might actually sign up for a 5K. Who knew? WOO HOO!

Now I'm sore. But it was worth it. Yay me! :)

    Great job! I started running by just going to the next corner and then until I couldn't do it anymore. As time went on, so did I. I love to hear about your progress! Keep it up! emoticon

    Awesome job! About 90% of running is mental--conquering that frees you to just enjoy what you're doing. Do find a 5K that looks like fun or supports a cause you believe in, then just go have fun doing it, whether you aim to run all, a lot, or a little of it. WOO HOO for you!
