A tiny acheivement, imagine me patting myself on the back
As you all know, I have taken up running. But as a person who is in the neighborhood of 100 pounds overweight, the victories are few and far between and I have to stop and congratulate myself when I can. I have done 3 5k's now, but I mostly walk fast in those, and jog for as long as I can. Those distances are pretty short. But along with starting to do organized runs has come a lot of training. Two nights a week I go running with my friend and running buddy Meadow. Last night we did our usual, run as long as I can (she is much better than I am) and walk fast the rest of the time. My big achievement last night was running 1/3 of a mile without stopping!! I was so proud of myself!! The next time we go will be Thursday night, and I am shooting for half a mile. Wish me luck!!
