2 Miles This Morning!!!!

I can't believe it, really I can't! Hit the gym this morning after I dropped off the kids at daycare although Edward wasn't happy to be there, poor baby!

It was CRAZY busy with NYR'ers (New Year Resolutioners) but I was able to find a treadmill and start. I started with a 1 minute brisk warm-up walk and then began my run.

I kept a consistent pace of 3.8 mph and after the "I'm gonna die" feeling wore off (which was around 7 minutes in) I began to feel very focused. Hit 1 mile in 16:05, 1.5 miles in 24:50 and 2 miles at 33:10 ~ all of this WITHOUT stopping!

I found my MP3 player and charged it today which really made a difference in my motivation and ability to wash out my thoughts and focus on my pace and rythym.

After I finished I went and cleaned myself off (I was covered in sweat). I had another 30 minutes left before I had to return to daycare ad just as I was approaching the machines one of the daycare workers came to get me b/c Edward was inconsolable, poor kid!

I feel so good right now except for the little blister I have on my right foot which I hope heals ASAP and I plan to go back to the gym tonight with Laura, I can't wait!!!!!!!

Your blog is the absolute best motivation I've had in a long time.
I can't seem to stick to any diet or excercize routine. I think about it 24/7. I keep getting fatter and I am miserable.
Reading about your run made me remember being 15/16/17. I ran on the tredmill everynight for 1 hour at 7pm and I lost 50lbs. I remember how great it felt!! Exactly how you describe. And I remember going to the gym twice in one day!
I want that high back!!

So, please.. keep writing. I hope I can get to where you are soon..
