Post Your Small, or Big, Victory For The Day! (Read 5450 times)

    Ran 5 miles in a little under 40...that's not outstanding in itself, its the fact that I ran it starting at 6:50AM.  I am not a morning runner, anything before 9AM races has been an extreme rarity throughout my life.  Trying to buy a little more time in some evenings to hang out with the family, now I merely need to jog 20-25 minutes tonight to get a really good day in.

      Broke 1500 miles for the year. I'm on track to equal my 2009+2010 years combined mileage in 2011. Smile

        Wow!  and I'm all excited about my little 300 miles!  That is awesome!  Keep up the good work.

          Went out and ran in very windy conditions this morning.  Ran 6.5 miles in it.  Gust up to 35 mph.  It was hard but I did it and feel really strong now that I did it!  Talk about a confidence booster.

            Ran my first double marathon.  Spinx Oct. 29 and Atlantya Oct 30 followed by Savannah Nov. 5th.  I think running a double is little like having a baby.  After you finish you say never again but then you start thinking well maybe.

              Today I needed band- aids.

                First run in over a month - glad I did it!

                2013 goals - one goal: finish my first marathon - 10/13/13

                done!  5:50!

                  1st one is always the hardest!  Keep it up!

                        Today is my six month "running anniversary." 

                         

                        Six months, 41 pounds, one marathon, and 1,089.6 miles.  Puts me at a total of 61 lbs lost since January--not bad for nothing but generally eating healthier and exercising a lot!

                         

                        I am feeling amazing right now!

                         

                        I feel like I need to sign up for another marathon (well, another another marathon--doing Flying Pig in May!).

                        "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

                          Yesterday I made 7 miles! First time in over a year making it past the 5 mile loop Clowning around I'm training for a half marathon coming up at the end of January. I feel like I can make it 10 miles, but I don't want to add too many miles too quickly and injure myself. I plan on running (jogging, really) 5 miles two to three times a week, 6+ miles once a week, and sprints once a week.

                            Sounds like you're going about it right, Amandakin!  Keep enjoying your running and you'll rock that half!

                            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                              Today this happened to me. I have the shirt to prove it too. Wasn't as bad as i expected, until I carelessly stepped into the shower. I'm hoping to get under 7 mpm on my  normal run soon, then finally ralph my brains out on a run.

                                I ran my first 5k (or any distance race) in my Vibrams. It was a success. I picked this one because I new a PR would be out of the question because of my physical shape and the layout of the course. It felt great and I ran faster than I have in those shoes. My wife and I had fun running together and now I will start the holiday with less guilt.
