First of many! (Read 536 times)

    First time since I started running that I have ran for at least and hour straight and also 5.5 miles. It was on a treadmill due to bad weather, but it felt great. If I can do this I know come March I can complete the Louisville Triple Crown. That is 3 races 2 weeks apart first a 5k then a 10k and lastly a 10 miler. Listening to podrunner definitely helped pass the time on the dreadmill. Just wanted to let someone know. Thanks Big grin
      Great job, Mike! Wow, you're exactly where I am, running-wise! It's such a great feeling, isn't it?? I never thought I would be able to run that far or long. Good luck getting ready for the 3 races - that sounds challenging but fun.


      that's what she said

        Congrats Mike! Isn't it THE BEST feeling!!

          Congrats! I can't wait to be at that level. And congrats on the new munchkin, too! Clowning around

            Thank you, Thank you. Yes it does feel great and I knew I could do it. It was just a matter of me slowing my pace down so I could run that long. I would try and run a 9:30 mm and think that was okay for an easy run. After reading I now realize that it should be at least 1 minute or more slower for an easy run.

              That's exactly what I was doing...after all the great advice I got on here, I slowed down and feel much better! Congrats on the arrival of your little one! My brother is a pilot for the AF...I should tell him to get to running! He has gained 50 pounds recently and couldn't hang with me for a mile Cool.

                    You brother couldn't hang for a mile? How has he been passing his fitness tests? I know that is one big reason I started running more than I was before, plus I put on about 15lbs
                      Oh yeah very nice kitties you have there Wink

                        That's what I wondered!? He said he took one a few months ago...passed it...but hasn't been running since. He also injured his back last year, so I think he wasn't doing anything physical for a while.

                            Yeah hurting your back will definitely put a damper in anything physical. And Obie, yeah my little girl is tiny and so cute. She was only 4 days old in that picture and now she is almost 3 weeks. Time sure does fly.
