Default I just RAN for .5 miles!!

I know it's not a ton, but it's the first time I've run for .5 miles WITHOUT stopping!! Yes, it took me 7 minutes at 4.4mph, but I RAN WITHOUT stopping for .5 MILES!!

It'll ONLY get better from here!! Wonder if I should work on the amount of time to get .5 miles in or the length first?

Just wanted to share!

Excellent Job!!!! You make me want to try that. Right now I just walk 2 miles @ 2.5. So I know how great a job you did jogging a half a mile! Keep up the good work!

That is AWESOME!
Have you heard about C25k? they say they can get you from the couch to running 5k in weeks. Its something I am thinking about trying, I have never been a runner but its something I would like to start working on.
Thanks for the motivation

~Mini Goal~

I started at the end of February and want to keep myself on an every other day schedule until May 5, 2011.
Fell off the wagon for a good two and a half weeks. So my date will be extended.
I have 12 workouts to go!
