ALERT! personal best!!!

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

okay, so, i just have to say... the last blog i posted, you know, about more cardio and pushing it to the limit... well, i did today! groovylynda, a fellow sparker, left a comment on the blog recommending i check out some podcasts and i found some podrunner podcasts that were free to put on my new ipod nano, and i hit the treadmill today telling myself "i like to run" ... and well, i did something i never did before... from minute 10 to minute 30, i jogged the WHOLE TIME. NON-STOP!!! i've never jogged 20 minutes straight in my life! it was really funny, because at minute 20, i was like, you ran 10 minutes straight, good job! and then i was like, hmm.. i wonder if i can run 10 more minutes... and I DID!!! it was such an awesome feeling. i started wanting to run, if you can believe that!!! so i started thinking.. like this is only my 2nd day of starting to run... yesterday i did 4 miles in 54 minutes. today i did 4 miles in 46 minutes. i did a helluva lot more running today than i did yesterday, i can tell ya that! but anyway, i just wanted to share this with you guys, and send a BIG thank you to Lynda! keep on me about my running, if you guys don't see me talkin about it. i want to transform... i love my sparkpeople, you guys are the BEST!!!

much love,

    Wow, great job on the running!!! Nothing feels better than being all sweaty and tired afterwards. Be careful though, running is sooo addictive.

    Nice job!! Watch out - a running obsession can sneak up on you out of nowhere and take over. It sounds like it may have already started!

    FIERCEFIREFLI'.Well,I'm pumped for you and know that you will be successful in all of your endeavors .You bring passion to everything you do.I'd like to thank you for inspiring me to get the Eat Clean Diet book by Tosca Reno .I'd noticed the team for quite sometime but did not make the leap until I read one of your post.Eating Clean is the best thing since sliced bread (made of whole grains and with at least 4 grams of dietary fiber ,of course). emoticon
