A week or so ago, I finally got to the 5 minutes of running point. Eeee! I'm great at walking at a 3.5 to 3.7 pace, but beyond that -- ugh. So I broke through that wall last week and have been trying to maintain at least 5 minutes of running during my 15 - 20 minutes of treadmill time.
Then, and this is where I'm most amped -- tonight there was so much energy at the gym. I got to the treadmill after strength training to find about seven people, all running, on the treadmills. There was one open for me, so after the warm up, I started to run right along next to all these energized, positive people. It felt AWESOME!
So then ... my first for tonight. I was feeling so excited about the energy in the gym tonight, after the mile on the treadmill, I spent 15 minutes on the stationary bike, and then -- THEN -- I got up the courage to brave the dreaded elliptical.
That machine is a beast. But you know what, for ten whole minutes, I owned it!
And I'm looking forward to getting back on that beast tomorrow.
Now ... to determine a first for next week as well...
