I think I just ran a 10 minute mile! That has been one of my goals since I began running. I ran 1.5 miles in 15 minutes so that means at 10 minutes I had run 1 mile right?!? Yay!!!! The way this came about was that I had to drop my van off at Chapman's Auto this morning so I just ran home from there. It took me 15 minutes and according to runningmap.com the distance is 1.46 miles (close enough to 1.5 for me). I am so happy!!

This morning I was grumping about the fact that I am sick of this cloudy weather and that I'd rather run when the sun is shining. Terry said I would just have to make my own sunshine. So I did! I ran 2.38 miles in 30 minutes and I feel great!

The weather was nice and sunny this morning but by the time I was ready to run it had clouded over and the wind was blowing so I decided to run on the treadmill. I added a new element to my run I watched Dancing With the Stars while running. This was awesome! My time on the treadmill is always slow, usually about a mile in 17 minutes. Today, with the distraction, I ran a 15 minute mile!! Yay!

2.2 miles in 26 minutes today! Feels good but I'm a bit disappointed because I really felt like I had pushed myself harder than the last time I ran this route but it took me a minute longer? Oh well, it's the whole journey that counts! I AM happy to say I have met one of my goals for the winter. That goal was to maintain my weight through the winter. I did it!! I'm no heavier than I was this fall no lighter either but that's okay.
