Tonight I did it! And at first I didn’t want to get on the treadmill because these two really buff guys were running really fast and I felt very intimidated. But I bucked up and told myself “put your big girl pants on” and “you don’t have much time at the gym tonight, so you need to run and once you start there’s no way you can stop until you get there…” so I went for it. I ran one mile in 9 minutes and 57 seconds. It wasn’t pretty there towards the end but it was done and I KNOW that if I’ve done it once I can do it again.
Mmmm, victory is oh so sweet.
that’s right. everyday hustlin :)
my best time so far is 10:09…I haven’t worked on it in awhile but I can taste 9 something around the corner. ALSO that 10:09 time was done with no stopping for quick walks! Soon.
I got down to 10:48 and kinda stopped working on this. This is a subgoal to losing weight, not a main focus. It’s better for my major goal to make sure I’m running intervals on the treadmill for 30minutes vs wiping myself out for 1 mile. I will start working on this again soon.
1 month ago I told a coworker I couldn’t run at all. That my feet were flat, my boobs were too big, I’m uncoordinated and I’ve just never been able to run. 4 weeks later my best time is 12:41. I feel like calling my 7th grade gym teacher and saying “TAKE THAT COACH CATO!!”
So I’ve got 50lbs to lose and almost 3 minutes to shave off my mile and I’m good to go.
