So on Monday I ran 5 miles. Without stopping. At a 10:20 pace.
This is a huge deal for me. I have never run more than 3 miles without stopping to walk at least once and I’ve sure as hell never held under an 11 minute pace.
I’m trying not to jump for joy at this accomplishment because it was on a treadmill and I know treadmills sometimes lie.
But seriously? 5 miles? 10:20 pace? I felt awesome before, during and after the run. Is this what running is supposed to be like? I’m not supposed to feel like I’m dying with every step?
Maybe this half marathon won’t be as terrible as I’ve anticipated.
