I finally did it...

Friday, July 25, 2008

I have just started running over the last month. I started slow and added time each time. Last night I ran 2 miles in 20 minutes without walking!!! I was so proud of myself because I never thought I would ever use running as my main exercise. I could barely run down the street without getting out of breath....Look at me know!! I love to get out and just go. It is a great stress reliever and a break from the kids. I have three kids and do daycare for two other kids my days can get hectic...enough said.

    Good for you! I know the feeling. Running is addictive. I love the feeling I get after a good run. I started out 2 years ago using the run/walk method and it's been perfect for me. Don't feel like you need to give up the walk breaks. They are great way of staying injury free and it's a proven fact that you can run further and faster by using walk breaks. Keep running! You're doing great.
