Talking One mile down.....

I went out on limb this evening and I ran a mile....I wasn't tired or winded... I went in the nose and out the mouth the whole time...I was running and breathing at a nice pace.....and when I did stop running I kept walking long enough to catchup with my breathing and then I took off again....and once I got close to home I stretched these long legs on out and sprinted on home all the way to the front door... I'm not tired at all, throat is a little itchy but , I did it...I DID IT...I know I might feel it later but i'm living in the now.... thankyou to you all for your words of encouragment and motivation. I kept picturing myself on beach with my husband and kids....that's what really kept me running witha smile on my face.

I made a promise to a friend of mine that next year I will run in a 5k. I'm going to have to take this year to lose weight and early next year to train (there is an 8 week "couch to 5k" program) but I think I can do it.

This is very motivating!!

wow! I tried jogging on my power walk last week and it almost felt foreign to me. That was scary. Now my goal is to try and jog a little on every walk...and buy better running shoes. You are an inspiration.

This will be an incentive to me, too. I walk every morning - but want to add in running. My boyfriend runs and I want to be able not only to run with him but give my dog more exercise (she's trying to find her waist again, too). Although I'm going to wait til I get a few more pounds off. Right now just being on a diet is still so new, I want to give my body some time to adjust. Next week though I'm moving from just lifting a few dumbells freestyle in the bedroom to actually working out in the exercise room. Never really liked exercise so am approaching this cautiously. Afraid I'll get to hating it and then just give up, and that would be so wrong, in so many ways! Congratulations - look forward to that post you make from beach!!
