Finally, the first part of October I ran a complete 1 1/2 miles without walking one bit!! Can't say I've done it since, but I find myself walking alot less. I feel my body getting stronger..although the outside does not show it. My eating habits still need to change for that to happen.
This morning it was raining so I debated just hopping on the treadmill, but the dog had different plans. He stood at the door and whined, so outside we went. I think about 1 mile into it he was regretting it, for he was soaked and firmly planted his feet for a moment. Running in the rain is kinda refreshing, but also felt alot harder. Ended up doing 3.86 miles. The other day when I ran I could picture myself looking good, good form, good stride (even though I realize to others I looked like a fat chick waddling along). Well today felt so different. My legs felt like bricks and I was struggling to keep any form, but the good thing is I didn't stop. I kept moving. The workout today was 45 minutes of a slow steady pace.
I now feel a little bit addicted. I can't wait for my workouts and don't want to miss any, even if that means I need to do them at 9:00 pm. Ok still need to work on getting up super early to get it in. Fact is I love that I can feel my body getting stronger!!
