Last night I ran more than I've run in a long time! Still did the two-mile route, but I actually ran almost all of it (about 1 1/2 miles). I couldn't believe it. I've never stuck with a running program long enough for it to become easier. I mean, I knew that's just how it works. I've just never personally experienced it. This is definitely enough motivation to stick with it!
However talking with my mom last night, I came to the realization that a two-mile run is less than a 5k. I honestly already did know that, but I understood it in a different way last night. I knew I couldn't just jump into something like a 5k after doing nothing. My goal is to go around the big block twice (four miles), running the majority of the way, by the middle of August. I can do it. I know I can. This is more exciting than I thought it would be. Go me!
