20 Minutes!!

Yesterday I ran successfully 20 minutes straight! 

It actually wasn't too bad either!  After the first 5 minutes it was really a mental thing.  I had to be like the Little Engine That Could and keep telling myself I could do it.  I knew I had ran 8 minutes before with no problems and this time I wasn't even pushing 40+ lbs in a stroller.

After 10 minutes, I knew I could do it and I got into the music.  I felt great afterwards too!

This next week will be fairly doable but...the week after I am terrified about.  It isn't just the running but the kids.  I also lose my running buddy too.  Mike is going to help me and I am hoping to do the runs in the mornings before Mike leaves for work.

By the end of this week I will be running 25 minutes!


  1. YAY! Congratulations on running 20 minutes! Good luck with the next few weeks!

  2. that's so awesome!! I know what you mean though about being terrified of the next week haha. Just think power words, like STRENGTH, ENERGY, POWER, SUCCESS... and of course "I CAN DO THIS" :D I am very proud of you lady!! I can't wait until you post that you ran 30 min straight :)
