8 minutes!

28 Feb

I ran for 8 minutes without stopping.  It was awesome.  This was at the end of my run.  I started with just running for 3 minutes at a time and then walking for 2 minutes in between.  I did this then entire run until I got to the end.  Then I ran and told myself I was going to go 4 minutes.  Then when I got to 4 I told myself 5 and then 6 and then 7 and then I was almost to 3.1 miles so I decided to just finish my run.  I am so proud of myself.  This made my day.  My knees were telling me to stop but I didn’t listen.  I kept going.  I can’t believe I did it.

The start of my run was rough.  I wasnt even sure I would make it through the whole run and then I do the best I have ever done.  I ran 3.1 miles in 42:52 – under 43 minutes – not by much but still under and when your running a 5k every second counts.  One day I will run a full 5K straight through.  One day!  But I feel it getting closer.

Lately I have been watching a movie while I run and today I was watching Mama Mia.  LOL  This is a great movie to run to.  Maybe that helped contribute to my great run.  🙂  Love that movie.

Hope everyone has a great day!
