8 minutes is my Bitch!
I AM STILL RUNNING... can you believe it. I'm still, slowly but surely, making my way through my my 5K trainer app! It's taking me longer than the prescribed 8 weeks because I'd rather repeat days to make sure I can really run them before moving on and I have kicked 8 mins Ass!!! I know to most people 8 minutes probably seems like it's nothing to brag about, but considering I've NEVER run before - I am pretty damn proud of myself. My catch phrase has always been... "I don't even run to the bathroom!" Proud of myself for sticking with it. The last time I tried to do one of these programs, 90sec did me in and I quit at that point. So, 8 mins is looking pretty damn good to me. Next step is 10min and I'm a little daunted by that. The last day of the program, supposedly I will be running for 35mins! No way in Hell that's ever gonna happen, but I'll keep after it. I actually went out and got real running shoes, some running pants and some cute tops. I figure if I look like a runner I might become a runner. Fake it until you make it! When I went into VA Runner to get my new shoes and I showed them the ones I'd been running in, it was all they could do not to look horrified and laugh at me! :o) But, I got my shoes and I'm off and running! Literally!
