day 14 - 69 days to go: I am runner hear me roar!

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.
