Wanted to mark the occasion-- I ran a mile Friday, at 5.0 mph. I had walked for about 10 minutes, picked it up and planned to run for 5 minutes, and then pushed it to 10, then thought, what the heck what's 2 more minutes? And by golly I had run a mile before I knew what had happened.
I had no problem stopping after 12 minutes, because I was beat! But it felt great. I finished with walking, for a total of 30 minutes on the treadmill, then did 15 minutes on the elliptical, which I'm starting to like as a complement to the treadmill.
I also did some sit ups after and had a good stretch. Loved the workout on Friday.
