i did it... for the first time in my life i ran a mile without stopping (even though i really wanted to) but it won't be the last. nope, i'm in training mode. i have committed to run my first 5k on July 19th in Panama City, FL. yep...that soon. so you see i really have to start pushing myself. i've been running every day but usually a quarter of a mile then walk a quarter than run a quarter (you get the picture). well, i sought out some advice from my brother who i will be running the 5k with and apparently i was doing it wrong...no surprise there. maybe even overdoing it. well, now i am committed to running every other day and walking 5 miles or so on the off days. this girl is motivated! i'll actually be running on my vacation...who woulda ever thought! not me that's for sure, i'm so excited!! so this week it's a mile non stop next week i'm shooting for one and a half if not two. i don't just run a mile and go home...in case that's what i gotcha thinkin' i run a mile then walk a quarter than run a quarter/half and then walk i try to get in at least 4-5 miles in a day. i love it and can't wait to see my own progress. p.s. if there are any runners out there reading this i'd love any advice.
