  • Whoo hoo! First 10 minute mile!

    Alright, so you're all rolling your eyes and are wondering what the big deal is, but for the fat asmatic kid who took four minutes to get around the track once in high school, this is a big day.

    I've still got a ways to go, but I'm farther than I ever imagined last year when this whole thing started.

    I think I'll celebrate with Lasagna... [Wink]

      Woohoo! Good job. Hopefully the running will set your mind to working so you can write more.

        Congrats!

        When I graduated from Parris Island many a-year ago, I was running 5 back to back 7-minute-miles.
        I couldn't do that now if you had pistol to my head!!

            Good for you! Congratulations! I was the same in high school and I was so proud of myself when I could run even 3 miles! Of course, that was before I had my second child. If you want to run, just come over to VIRmont and go for a run with my husband. He'll get ya up to 20 miles in no time. He plans to run the Boston marathon next year.

            Again, whoo hoo! Have some good lasagna, you deserve it! [Wink]

              I remember the first time I broke a 4.5-minute mile.....some 20 years ago. [Frown]

                  got any pointers for those us that as STILL fat and out-of-shape?

                  ive got myself down to a 5 minute 1/2 mile, but i just run out of steam and start walking every other block after that. its probably all mental, i cant seem to push myself to run a continuous mile. ill make a round trip of 2 miles, running the first and last 1/2 mile, but in between i have to run/walk alternating each block.

                      Hey, I was a four-year cross country runner who let himself gain weight in college, so I know where you're coming from! WAY TO GO, you're past the hardest part!! Once you're in some kind of shape, it's a lot easier to stay that way and keep working.

                      Good job!!

                        MUSIC. Good music helps SOOO much. Greenday saved my butt last night...I kept playing the same song three times over and over, and it's hard to hear your heart exploding over a good drum-beat.

                        Also, I picked up some tips at

                        http://www.time-to-run.com/

                        But I'm still heavy. 218 on the scale, and I'm theoretically supposed to be at 180...but there's NO WAY that will ever happen. [Wink]

                        And as always...thanks all.

                          i think ill try this. i guess im working at a starting point of 5-6 minutes of continuous jogging. do you think adding 2 minutes a week (running mon, wed, fri, and sat) is too much?
