I did it!!!
So today is a special two for one day! I posted earlier and spoke about how I just was not motivated and how I needed to get some "sun" in my life and get out of this rut. Well as I typed that post I kept thinking how when I go to work out how I feel so much better. So on my way to the gym I decided I was going to really push myself today and so something I had never done....I was going to do a 5K on the treadmill. So 3.11 miles. My goal was to do it in less than an hour and to still be alive afterwards. Well I dug deep a couple of times and I pushed myself more today than I ever have. I averaged about a 15.32 mile I think with a total time of 49.22 so less than an hour with time to spare. I even answered an important call during this fast paced walk. I have not gotten comfortable jogging on the treadmill so it is a speed walk! I am SOOOOO PROUD of myself! This was something that I can write down as one of my milestones. I am even more confident in doing a 5K walk in July. Just wanted to share this exciting event with you! Who would have thought 7 months ago I would have done a 5K on the treadmill and still be alive to tell about it! If I can do it so can you!!!
