Who just ran 2.5 miles for the first time?









I'm so excited! As you know (if you pay any attention to me) I increase my run distance by a quarter mile each week. This week I was supposed to go 2.25 miles but once I hit that I thought "what the heck, just keep going" and so I did! The park I run at has a running/biking trail that is 1.25 miles all the way around. When I saw how close I was to going around twice I just couldn't stop!

The beginning of this run was abysmal! My legs just felt so heavy my mind set was not right so I spent the first half mile miserable. Some where after that though I started to tell myself "keep pushing" "you CAN do this!" And I found my groove. Besides tired legs after the 2 mile mark the run overall was great. I feel awesome, I feel pleased and more than anything I am just impressed with my endurance growth.

I hope you are all having a wonderful workout day! Keep up the good work and please continue to keep pushing!

Tell me, what can you do now that you weren't able to accomplish when you first began your journey?
