A Milestone For Me

On Saturday I ran 3 miles for the first time ever in my life! Ran, not walked!

The first mile was pretty easy, the second mile wasn't too bad, but I really had to fight to keep going in that third mile. Breathing was fine and leg muscles were fine -- I just felt an overall weariness in that last mile.

Now in the old days, before Team Voice, I would have stopped running and been perfectly satisfied to walk. No problem with walking, it can be quite fun and really good exercise.

But this time, in the third mile, I just kept telling myself to "keep on moving", and that I'd have to learn how to push myself in order to be ready for The Race.

So I kept running, and was really proud when I finished!

Rae, you read my mind!! That is a great one too. Let's see if we can build a list on the forums of some great ones for training.
