First 5 mile run!!! (Read 855 times)


Insert witty title here

    I FINALLY got my first 5 mile run without stopping.. actually 5.5 miles!! I had tried it twice before and hit a wall around 3.5 that I couldn't get past. The funny thing is I wasn't even trying this time. I was actually going out for an easy run after taking 3 days off to let me knee heal (and I will catch hell from Zoomy about this I'm sure) and after 3 miles I felt so good I didn't want to stop so I ran another 2.5 miles. I finally made myself stop after 5.5, but I felt like I could have kept running for several more. At least I did keep it sorta slow for me. I told myself to keep it around 10:00 mpm and I hit the 5 mile mark at 50:09.

                Absolutely! It's amazing how far I can go when I actually slow my butt down and quit trying to set some new personal best time. Thanks for the compliments. Don't worry soonergal, I'm sure it'll happen for you real soon! Apparently you just have to go out planning for a short run, scared that you're going to hurt your knee and the rest will fall into place Smile

                        No kidding. I've been amazed at how much farther I can run when I slow down.
