    I got my first medal for placing in a race this morning. It was a 10k and though the rain may have scared away much of my competition, it showed me how far just running consistently can take you. Just 2 years ago I was happy with 10min miles!

      Ran 5 days in a row last week for the first time in my life.  Started a HM training program about 2 months ago and we are ramping up and last week called for 5 days in a row.  Wasn't sure I could do it, prior to starting training at most I ran 2 days in a row and then had a rest day.  Felt great all week, took yesterday off and then ran 5 miles today.  Still feeling great!  It's hard to hold back at this point.  I want to just run!

        Give a man a fire and he'll be warm the rest of the night;
        Set a man afire and he'll be warm the rest of his life.

        What in the Jehu?

            Take it anyway you can get it. Next time the speedsters will not be afraid of a little water.

              12-week layoff

                On Sunday, I ran 3 miles or so without stopping for the first time since I broke my ankle. It was slow, but it felt like a run, not the shuffle I have been managing since I started back.  Now that I'm actually running, I'm going to start logging my runs again!

                  30 days of my comic strip in the bag. A short milestone. Sort of like making it to mile 1 in a marathon, but it still feels like a small accomplishment. Any kind of progress in running or in life is truly one step at a time. One day at a time.

                              So, it's nothing compared to the streaks some people have going, but I hit my 100th day today.

                               

                              100 days, 975.6 miles.

                               

                              I'm pretty geeked out about it--and going to sleep a LOT tonight to celebrate! Smile

                              "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."
