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!
