With my hours at work being so few, I've gotten into the habit of running quite a bit over the summer. For the past few weeks I've run an average of 2 miles on every day that I'm not at work. So far this summer I have run over 48 miles!! That's crazy to me!
My time for my first mile has been steadily dropping. Last week I ran a mile in under ten minutes for the first time in I don't even know how long. Today, my times were slower, but that was because I actually RAN my whole route - no walking at all for 2.2 miles! It may not sound like much, but I cannot remember the last time (if ever) I have accomplished this. My muscles feel tight but other than that I feel like I could go back out for more :)
Hopefully I can keep these habits up when I move back to school next month. I have a goal of being 135 lbs by the end of summer (my birthday, coincidentally) and I only have a few more pounds to go. I've never really completed a short-term fitness goal like this before, so I'm excited and I hope I can sustain the progress.
