Yesterday I discovered that I could (only) run 1 mile before needing a quick break, and then I pushed for another half mile. Since I finished that post saying someone should check on me today and motivate me to do it again, I thought I should follow up.
It turns out that simply telling you (the three people that might read this, ha!) that I needed to go again today was motivation enough. I set the alarm last night for 6:15, hit the snooze until 6:30, and was at the gym by 6:45.
Today I stretched it to 1.2 continuous miles, took a minute break, and then ran another .7 miles. Total cardio workout went for 38 minutes and had 3 miles included, which means I walked another 1.1 miles.
(Aside, I have this friend who hate hate hates it when people post information like that on Facebook, and I sort of get why she does, but I sort of get why people do it, too- it's encouraging and motivational to have people know and hold you accountable on your journey to a healthier you.)
I feel pretty good about myself today.
Now, who will motivate me tomorrow?
