Determination does pay off

Monday, November 26, 2012

emoticon I finally got to run my virtual 5K today!!! I have had so many interruptions
to my daily routine, I was beginning to wonder when I would get to do it. Living on the Cumberland Plateau, there is not a lot of level ground around here, so most of my walk/jog was hilly. However, I have never been one to give up. I had not run, nor had I exercised consistently since college. I am now 67, so as you can see, that has been several years. I made the walk/jog in 50:40:34. That may not seem like a good time for some, but I was very proud of it. Happy that I had taken the challenge and saw it through. I would never have done this without SP. Actually, I would never have thought I could. I kept looking forward to a different spot and telling myself that I could run that much further, and it worked. Now I know that if I just tell myself I can, and work through with determination, I can do even more. I'm not losing like I would like, but I feel so much better and have a more positive outlook emoticon
