One of many...

Friday, April 29, 2011

I did it!! I ran my first full mile EVER in my life! I never thought it was possible for me, even in middle school and high school I would walk...as I have always been overweight.

I think I am just in utter amazement about it because before I would occasionally walk and then jog for a few minutes but I had never made it past 5 minutes of jogging without having to walk again. Today I had been walking and decided to start jogging. I put my towel over the treadmill and told myself I was going to go until I could not go anymore. 14 1/2 minutes later I completed my mile - WAHOO! emoticon

Now that I know that I have it in me I can push myself more and more...and work towards that first 5K.

04/29/2011 - 1 mile 14:38 @ 4.0-4.4
05/02/2011 - 1 mile 13:27 @ 4.5....I knocked over a minute off!

**Updated - Now that I know the one mile was not a fluke, I will be starting the 5K your way Running program :-)
