Holy crap! This was a hard one. I think the last time I ran for 5 minutes straight was in the last millennium. Seriously. We had to run for 12 minutes in high school and I'm pretty sure thats my most recent run (other than to the bus or train, that is). I went slow. VERY slow. Like...old ladies walking faster than me slow, haha. But I did it!!! I kept running for all 16 of those running minutes. My quads were killing me something fierce and by the end my feet were numb. But I did it!
I slept like crap last night so I was TIRED this morning. I'm hoping that on Monday night I will sleep much better so Tuesdays run won't be quite as tough. I'm really proud of myself though- I have strength and willpower I didn't even know I had!
P.S. Thanks for all your support, fellow Sparkers!!!!!!!!
