Maybe I'm not in as bad of shape as I thought?  I got on the treadmill yesterday, expecting to alternately run/walk one tenth of a mile until I had completed a mile.  I thought it would take about three weeks to work my way up to running a mile.  But...  I got to two tenths of a mile and thought I could keep going.  So I did.  All the way to one mile!  Just call me the Energizer Bunny - thank you! 



Of course it took me 15 minutes to run that mile, which isn't fabulous, but heck I ran a mile!  I haven't done that since my school days and I am sooooooooooooooooooooo proud of myself.  Part of my motivation to keep running was that I told myself I could quit as soon as I hit a mile and if I did it faster than my normal 20 minutes of cardio, then I didn't have to do the full 20 minutes.  I'm not big on exercise - but hopefully that will be changing as I acomplish more and more goals.



On my way to gym, I had decided that I could have a new pair of running shoes when I ran a mile.  Since it was so easily accomplished, I'm going to make it my prize for running two miles, which really will take me a while to acheive.
