Today I ran 4 miles without stopping for the first time in my life. I might goes as far as to say that I am a runner. This is so bizarre to me. I am 40 years old and I am getting stronger and doing something I never, ever dreamed of. In fact, if you asked me if I love to run, I still might hesitate. Weird! To say that I am excited is an understatement. I almost can't stop smiling. I am really proud of myself, and those days are happening more and more. I am way overdue for feelings like this and I have a lot of catching up to do. So, here are my lap times:
Mile 1-13:09 (running)
Mile 2-13:10 (running)total 26:19
Mile 3-13:06(running)total 39:26
Mile 4-12:48(running w/last ditch effort sprint)total 52:16
I can't believe how consistent my pace was. Especially since at about 3 1/2 miles I felt like I was going in slow motion. Go figure.
My weight was only down to 177.5. I was hoping for more. Oh well. Keep going. Even better for my mental and physical state, tomorrow is a day of rest.
