Today was a great run day for me.
The drill was to run for 3 and walk for 1 for 20 minutes. (Plus warm up and cool down.) I did it and it was great...
Then, at the end of my training, I thought I would challenge myself and try to run for five straight minutes because I'm anxious to start upping my run time. Wasn't sure if I'd be able to run for 5 straight minutes but I did - and the song was so good, I thought I'd do an extra minute! Six minutes! but I didn't stop there- oh no I did not -- I was on a roll! Screw it. Think I can do seven? YUP... and then eight and nine, ten... I finally decided to stop running after 11 or 12 minutes (I freakin' lost track! HA!)
My heart was beating, I was panting and my face was the color of a tomato but it was amazing.
I walked out of the gym with my head held just a little higher than when I walked in.
PS: Checking out The Secret now - thanks Lisa
PSS: Sara, good call on the Eminem "Lose Yourself" song... got me to do the last 3 minutes of the bonus run.
