Small Victories

Very small victory for some, biggish for me. I finally made it the full two miles while jogging. No stopping. No walking. There were times when my jogging was VERY slow, especially when going uphill. But, it was jogging nonetheless.

I think I could have made it that first time I tried but I just kinda gave up. It got uncomfortable, not unbearable, but I still stopped. There were several times on today's run when my mind gave up, but my legs kept going until my mind could catch up. I didn't stop. And, while I know two miles is not that far, today I will celebrate my whole two miles. Maybe next week I will celebrate 2.5 miles.

Maybe not.

Huge milestone. Check it off the list and keep going! Remember that if you just keep swinging your arms back and forth...the legs HAVE to follow. ;) See you on the road!
