For me, its a biggy (Read 927 times)

    Most times anything over 1.6 miles requires walking at some point even if it is only 30 seconds. Sunday 3.4 miles non stop! I know for most that is not much. To me it is a mile stone.

    To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire

      Wow, that's a big on, in my eyes! That's 2+x the distance with no walking! WTG, Gregg! Big grin k

      • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

      • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

        Alright!!! Way to go, Gregg!!! Big grin

        Roads were made for journeys...

          Good job. You get extra points because you've been training in some fairly sick weather conditions too. Nice.

          The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.

              WTG Greg!!

                Spectacular! Every wall you break down and through makes you all the tougher!! Keep it up.

                      Now that was a bath...

                        Well done! It's easy when you post in a running community to think that these distances are short - but tell most non-runners that you just ran that distance and they would probably answer 'I couldn't do that'. Way to go on the progress. Claire xxx

                            I often find that "me" is the hardest person to please/impress with my accomplishments! Congrats on making your "me" take note! Woot!

                              It's a biggy for anyone, Bear Poop. Sorry, I just really wanted to type "bear poop." Oops. I did it again. Most people can't run 3 miles. Most can't run 1 mile. Most wouldn't even try. It's a biggy, Bear Poop. Sorry. I keep doing that.
