I've been training for a 5k. I've been trying so hard. I run/walk intervals. I sweat. My legs ache. My lungs burn.
And I finally had a pay off!
I shed 13 minutes off my time tonight
Did you hear that?
I shed 13 whole minutes off my time! I didn't know that was possible. Especially this early in my training.
When I was done I was drenched in sweat and my legs twitched but none of that mattered.
My heart was soaring! I felt like I was on top of the world. I even gave myself a big ol' smile! I kept saying, "I did it. I really did it!" I'm still in shock and I have told everyone I can. (without bragging too much) If it wasn't 10 pm I would probably go run some more; a victory lap or two.
Now my goal is to shed 7 more minutes off my time. You can bet your bottom dollar that I will "Shout if from the mountain top!" when I reach it!
