Thanks to Spark People's running plan, I just completed a mile in 13:14.
That may not sound that fast to an experienced runner, however five weeks ago when I began the program, my mile time was 16 minutes to run just one mile. I was struggling.
It was still difficult to run for 13 minutes straight, however I was going faster. I hope in just 3 more weeks on the 25th I'll be taking that personal "virtual" 5k, I know it'll be difficult, but I know the training has made me better and better. I just wish I knew about joining this group 5 weeks ago lol. :-)
