A little bit of effort goes a LONG way

The running is getting better and better every time I am on the treadmill. This week's goal is to comfortably run 3 miles 3x a week. Well, I have successfully ran "Day ONE" of the goal. I managed to push myself on the treadmill and kept at very steady pace. It does help to have a gym partner to join me during the time. I had the awful side stitches with only 0.2 miles to go (UGH!). I pressed on and did not stop until I finished the mileage.

Today's run
3 miles
12:30/mile pace

How awesome is that!

i'm so happy to see you getting back on track with running, sounds like you are approaching it in a very smart way, nice work.

Very awesome, and even sweeter that you persevered through the dreaded stitches :-)

That's a very reasonable goal, and you should be able to achieve it with the success you've had lately.

You were showing some very good form on the treadmill yesterday.  You are definitely back!
