I've marked 2 running goals off my goals list this week:
* Run 10 minutes without stoppingOn Wednesday, I ran my first full mile (1.1 to be exact) and ran it in 12+ (I don't have the exact time) minutes. After running a while on the treadmill, I stopped, lifted the towel to see what I had done and started laughing/sobbing when I saw I had done a mile. I had 2 little old ladies beside me (literally - neither of them could have been over 5' and were at least 70+....I love my gym!) who started looking at me full of concern, probably thinking I had injured myself or something. But I calmed and collected myself, walked a little bit and then started doing 6.4 mph sprints. Wednesday was a good day.
* Run 12 minutes without stopping
Couldn't repeat the time, speed or running distance on Friday when I ran, but I wasn't feeling top form (allergies were started to get to me), so I'll give it all another go this coming week. But now I know I can do it. And that was an amazing feeling.
And on Saturday, I swam 1/2 mile (800 meters/32 lengths) in 34 minutes. I was pretty proud of myself! My next 2 goals for swimming are:
* swim 1 mile by 3 JuneIt's do-able. I've signed up for another session of swimming class which starts week after next. My form and breathing are TONS better, but I really enjoy the class, the coach, and the accountability it gives me to swim. And I want to start working on other swim styles (backstroke, breast stroke, butterfly) over the course of the next few months, so I want to continue to go.
* do 1/2 mile in 30 minutes or under
So that's been my week.......
How's your week been? Any new goals you've set?
Any funny moments in your week?
