AND I AM ADDICTED TO RUNNING!!!
I ran Week 5 Day 3 today. It was the "dreaded" 20 minute run...
Well it went fabulous and I feel fabulous!
Now, you can ask me how I feel tomorrow, because I have a feeling I will have muscles hurting that I don't know I have!
The run started out great. I was nervous, but confident that I could do it! My stubbornness actually came in handy tonight! Haha :) My ankles were burning a little at first, but once I kept going they worked themselves out. I ended up running 1.37 miles in 20 minutes. Now, that's about a 16 minute mile, which in the long run, really stinks! I MUST start working on speed! BUT it is still a HUGE accomplishment for me! I just cannot get over how good the whole thing felt! It was absolutely amazing! Walking afterward, I twittered the exciting news. :) I totally had the "Runner's High" that I see everyone blogging about. So...I decided to run another half a mile. Well then I said lets make it .75. Well I never saw the .75 marker, so I kept going! And before I knew it...I had run another MILE!!! I was ecstatic!!!
The one thing I must complain about is... my sock rolling down into my shoe on my left foot. I ended up running my last .25 with the sock rolled down. It looks like I need new socks!! Anyone have any suggestions on a good brand!?!
In the end, I ran 2.37 miles and walked the rest to make it to 3.25 miles altogether. I feel great! I am ready to do it again! Now I just have to work on speed! :)
