I run.

I am a runner.

I realized something on my run last night.

I CAN DO THIS!

I will be running an 8K race in one month. ONE. Month.

But it’s ok, I can do it.

It took me five days to get back to the gym due to our Snowpocalypse of 2014.  I didn’t think I could run for 40 minutes.

I had been craving a run all weekend but when the time came I was afraid.  I was afraid I would be set back due to my lack of running.

So I tied my shoes, put in my earphones and hit start.  And I ran.

This was the last day of doing 10 min intervals with 1 min run between, repeating 4 times.  At the end of the first 10 minutes I did not walk.  I knew that I could run 30 minutes with out walking, I did that weeks ago, so I told myself I would go at least 20 minutes.

At the end of 20 minutes, I did not walk.  I really wanted to walk at 25 minutes, but I did not stop.  I had to make it to 30.  As I was pushing myself my mind cleared and I knew that I could do it.  I can run the 5 mile race next month.

It won’t be fast, my current pace is an 11 min/mile.  But I can do it.

I walked for two minutes after the 30, then ran for 10, walked for 2 and then did my cool down.
