Today has been a great day. Last night Steven and I mapped out a run starting at the fitness center. It was almost 2.5 miles. It was long enough for my brother to get his full run in and great for my 20 minutes. I ran all 20 minutes! What a feeling! I could not believe I did it. It is a lot easier to run outside. I was able to focus on things around me and get out of my head. I could not of done this a few weeks ago.
I also want to point out that I ran a mile without stopping today. I have not been able to do this or even tried since high school. I did it in 13 minutes 19 seconds. I run very slow, but I am running. I know the speed will come in time.
I also weighed myself this morning. Its not one of my "official" times but I still am very excited about it. I am now under 300 lbs!!! I got past my plateau and now weight 299.2.
Jen is the love of my life and I am very excited to spend tonight with her for Valentines day. She did a group strength class with me Saturday and the instructor said she was amazing! I couldn't agree more.
