A mom's adventures in keeping healthy, keeping her sanity, and making stuff.

Look What I Can Do!

I did my first non-stop 20 minute run yesterday. Well, okay… I did stop a few times to get some really good drinks of water and I did walk for 30 seconds. Still, I am very proud of myself. I started out in January with worrying over running for 90 seconds. I did nearly fall over walking up the one step into my house, but I RAN FOR 20 MINUTES! Woohoo!

I am hoping to get to FL soon to have my brother fit me out properly for running shoes. His running store has this process of determining which shoe fits your feet and your running style. I’m also very proud he is 1/3 owner of a successful store (it is listed in the top 50 running stores in the US) and support him when possible. The shoes I have now are ok, but they are a few generations of hand-me-downs. A little plug for my brother (for any possible readers from FL):

The Jacksonville Running Company

Today I will be doing some cardio and strength training. I wish I had started doing this earlier in my running adventure. Ah well. If we didn’t make mistakes, we wouldn’t learn any lessons.

One thought on “Look What I Can Do!

  1. Look at you! Congrats on your 20min-er. And definitely think it’s good to do the strength training. I need to actually do that as well. Because I think it’d help my legs not get tired so quickly!

    Let me know how it goes…post your workouts. I’d love to know (and copy) what you are doing =P
