- run a half mile
I decided not to do C25K today, but instead just got on the treadmill to see what happened. I walked the first quarter mile and then tried running. I ran the second quarter, but then Ben started fussing, so I had to stop. I crossed that goal off my list though! I ran a quarter mile! Once Ben stopped fussing, I got back on the treadmill and went for my half mile goal. Once I got there, I decided to keep going just a little more until I'd completed a mile and a quarter (a mile ran, a quarter mile walked). I can now cross off the next goal, which was to run a half mile. I wish I could cross off the goal after that, which was run a mile, but since I didn't run it consecutively (since I had to stop to deal with Ben), I feel that it would sort of be cheating. I'll shoot for the goal sometime this week. :)
I am pretty proud of myself for running 3/4 of a mile consecutively, though. It was tough near the end, but I know that the more I push myself, the closer I get to reaching my goals. It's all about that push and desire. And I have it!
