My Secret - Doing Something I've Never Done
Thursday, May 21, 2015
I have a secret.
I've never been able to run a mile. Never. I walk. Throughout my life, I've been more active, I've been less active -- and I've been inactive! But the hurdle I've never been able to get over is that mile run.
So here's my chance. I am training to run that mile. I don't want to to run it in a certain time - at least not at first. I just want to finish. Run without stopping.
Right now I walk and run on my treadmill and at a local park. I can run for two minutes straight (a couple of weeks ago, it was only a minute) and I can run 1/8 of a mile at the park.
But next week it'll be 2-1/2 minutes. Or 3. And perhaps it'll be 1/8 of a mile plus a few steps. A little at a time.
Because I'm going to do something I've never done before in my life. And how great is that.
And who knows. After that mile run is behind me, maybe I'll find something else I've never done before -- and do it!
