Congrats! These are the exciting things we celebrate. Running 30 sec, 60 sec, 90 sec, 3 mins, 8 mins. That's how I became a runner. After carrying around various running books.... Beginner Runner, Couch to 5K, Everything a Woman Needs to Know about Becoming a Runner, Jeff Galloway book of Marathon Training... etc.... every other silly titled book about running.... for several years. I ran once and didn't like how it felt so I stopped. Then a few years later I did it again. This time running the way Jeff Galloway suggests, with walk breaks.... starting out running for 30 sec then increasing and walking between. Now I run 2-3 miles most days and on some nice refreshing rainy days (rain is my favorite way to run) I have run up to 4.5 miles. If I can do it.... formerly 230 lbs.... formerly couch bound.... formerly a non mover much less a non runner.... you can do it.
WooHoo !!!! Keep going! A little bit more every day! or even every other day! You don't have to go every day to make progress.
You can be the hammer, making things happen, or you can be the nail that sits there and gets pummeled over and over.
If youíre starting to feel like a nail, itís up to you to keep your program moving forward.
