Default I ran a mile for the first time in years!

I missed my spin class yesterday for a doctor's appointment, so I decided to lift weights (which I usually do afterward) and then attend a yoga class beginning an hour later. After I finished lifting, I had about twenty minutes to kill before yoga. I decided to do a little cardio, which I'd usually do on an elliptical but, for some reason, I found myself stepping on a treadmill instead.

To my shock, I then ran a mile. Granted, it took me fifteen minutes to do 1.10 miles, but I haven't run a mile in years, and I don't think that I would have had the conditioning to do it a month ago. And I'm sure I could have run further if I hadn't had to go to yoga class.

HOLY COW, I RAN A MILE! Next stop, themed 5k in the fall!

Congratulations! I did the same thing last night, I actually made it the whole way without slowing down, so I understand your excitement. It's a great feeling. =)

Congratulations When I broke that first mile barrier it was the best feeling. Can't wait to see your post that says you completed your first 5k.

This is my first fitness goal. It is slow and going since I have a recurring back injury. I think I need to drop a bit more weight before I start training again.

congratulations!
