25 minutes and counting (Read 1238 times)

    So, I'll start off by saying I did my first 25 minute jog today!!! The longest I've ever run in my ENTIRE life, without stopping to walk, was 17 minutes. Smile YAY! Kimmer

    Needs more cowbell!

      That's really awesome! That's like running for the entire length of the average sitcom, including ads. I like to put things into perspective like that. I know I'll be really excited when I can run for as long as it would take to watch an epic film like any of the LOTR films, "Titanic" or "Braveheart." Smile k

      • Do some dus...and some CX...and some tandem gravel...and some podiums...

      • PRs

      • 130#s (or less)

        25 minutes is great! Whoot!

        Roads were made for journeys...

          Yikes - yes, I meant minutes Smile

            So today my pace went from 12:53 to 12:27. Know how? I didn't get a stitch today!!! I was so excited, I can't even tell you. It threatened to rear it's ugly head around 20 minutes. But again, I pushed through and was able to increase my pace for the last 4 minutes of my 25 min jog. YAYAY!!! Kimmer

              I still get stitches from time to time. I noticed when I did my long run last weekend that I got a little bit of a stitch when I would be eating my jelly beans. I think it's because I had to breathe differently while putting a few beans in my mouth and chewing. I find that just concentrating on taking long and deep breaths really helps with that. k

                Run alot, mostly slow. Drop your pace to 13:30 and you may be able to double you time.

                Run until the trail runs out.

                  someone's pulling up old Kimmer threads

                    Not to rain on anyone's congratulatory parade, but this thread is nearly a decade old.

                     

                    Even so, GO KIMMER!

                        By now Kimmer is either prepping for the upcoming Marathon Trials, Biggest Loser, or her kid's second grade play.

                              I apologize. This is the second time you have been forced to scold me for not being serious enough. Henceforth, I will start taking notes on how to be a cranky old curmudgeon, so there will be less distractions from our very serious running talk.
