a week or so ago i didn't know if i was going to make it to 400 miles running this year and now i've done it. my wife needed to run tonight and i talked her into running outside so we could do it together. it was 54 degrees so she agreed to try it.
since running two 5K races - the last one was on thanksgiving day - she's restarted the couch to 5K program and pushed herself to run harder on the running parts and walk faster on the walking parts. i must say, she's improved her speed quite a lot. my legs and lungs and heart actually got completely warmed up during the first 90 second run we did. they stayed warm and felt great the whole time. it was awesome!
when she finished as much as she wanted to run, i ran a little extra just so i was sure i'd be over 400 miles. i over did it by 12 tenths of a mile. i still shake my head when i think about running that many miles. when i began 2010 i had no intention of running even 1 mile. now i love it and have no plans to stop.
