Yesterday, I ran.
I ran a full mile without taking a walking break. This is something I don't believe that I have ever done in my life. Ever. I think I cheated it in my schooldays. And even though I have been working at this goal of training for the Sweet Pea 5k for a while, it's been run some walk some, repeat.
For me because this is all so outside of my knowledge base, figuring things out, like how to determine what is a mile. How to know that in my body has been a challenge.
So yesterday morning, my family piled in the car. We found a quiet road. Drove a mile, returned to the starting-line and I got out. They met me at the end. Cheering, "Go-Mommy! Go!". My son shouting his rally call of, "C'mon Mom! Show me what you're made of!!!"
I've been posting running route maps from the Wednesday night meet up, by using MapMyRun. Do any of you have websites or apps that you find helpful? I like that MapMyRun marks miles as you go. It's helping me get my head around it a little.
