I did it!!!!! I've been on this journey for almost 2 years in April. Lately, I've been feeling like I just want it over with. I want to hit maintenance and stop pushing for the weight loss. I know this is a temporary feeling but I just decided to dig in and do it. I've tightened my daily eating routine and upped my exercise slightly.
Today was in the 60s which is unheard of in my area for January (snow is coming tomorrow evening). Since it was nice, I decided to go for it. Previously, my longest outside run was a little over 4.1 miles. I've been working on speed on the treadmill because of the cold weather. I felt strong and just decided to go for it....AND I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5 miles, outside AND I TOOK ALMOST A MINUTE OFF MY MILE PACE. I kept telling myself that I am stronger than I think I am. I kept repeating my motto....FAITH, FOCUS, FINISH.....AND I DID IT.
Too think, less than a year ago, I WAS SCARED TO RUN 1 MINUTE. I started C25K in April 2012 and today I ran 5 miles...may not have been as fast as some but I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had to celebrate here....thanks for reading my long post. Just excited
