It’s a miracle, peeps! Oh, my peeps, guess what? I had a great running day! I was supposed to do three five minute intervals, with breaks to walk in between. Due to a mathematical error, my second interval was only 4 minutes. So I decided that, if I felt up to it, I would run 6 minutes on the last interval to make up for it, but gave myself permission to only run the 5 if I didn’t feel like adding time.
I. Ran. More. Than. Ten. Minutes. Straight. YAY! That might seem like nothing to some people, but it is great for me. GREAT, I say! I even felt like I could run more, but didn’t want to push it since I’m still a beginner.
What I learned today:
• An iPod with music helps. It both relaxes you and energizes you at the same time. Thank you, Stevie baby. Thank you, Aretha honey. You pushed me to keep going!
• Be selective about who you share your victories with. Some people are encouraging, and other people are defeating.
