GUESS WHAT? On my 3.1 mile run tonight, I ran 2 miles nonstop. You know I normally do run/walk intervals, but tonight I walked .5 warm up then ran 2 straight miles, then did a .6 mile power walk to cool down (there was a creeper on the path so I moved with a purpose). I haven’t run 2 straight miles since I was in the army back in 2000. WOO HOO!!!!! It most definitely wasn’t fast (it was pitch dark out plus I didn’t want to die), but it was steady and I did it. The last half mile of running I got a little tired/sore so I said the Military Phonetic Alphabet (alpha, bravo, charlie, delta . . .) out loud saying one letter every 4 steps. I repeated it maybe 4 or 5 times. It worked perfectly at distracting me and motivating me to keep going. 2 miles nonstop – can you believe that? ROCK!
How was your Saturday?
