This past Saturday I did my first real long run. I ran 7 MILES WITHOUT STOPPING. The best part was I felt great!!!! That is the longest I have ever run at one time in my entire life. It made me realize that I can do this half marathon and that hopefully *fingers crossed* I won't get swept up with those that don't keep the minimum pace.
I started the week off today with 2.5 miles on the treadmill (which is becoming dare I say easy) at a 13.02 pace followed by an hour of yoga. Yoga is slowly making me a better runner (jogger really). It helps me to better focus my mind on runs since the right state of mind is half the battle.
My eye is on the prize....earning that darn finisher medal!
