What a year! (Read 497 times)


levitation specialist

    I can run a dozen miles at once.

    Today, for the first time, I ran 12 miles without stopping. Last year, I couldn't run more than 1 mile!

    Last year, I ran a 10:30mm pace for that one mile at a HR of 175. Today I ran each mile at a 8:45 pace with a HR of 135.


    I just signed up for my first full marathon. And I turn 40 in 2 weeks. Take that, middle age!

      Great progress. Remember life begins at 40!

        Good job.  I bet in another year you'll look back and say wow, I couldn't have believed I could have gotten here.
