The 10 minute mile has always alluded me. I will sprint, push and sweat but the most i've been able to do is the 11 minute. I think I MAY have hit 10 minutes once, back when I was at the gym everyday, but ive never been able to repeat or to maintain...
Well ladies... I DID IT!As the clock hit 10 minutes, my distance hit 1.0! I was so happy that I didn't even realize I was keeping up the pace. When I looked back down it was 11 minutes, and I was at 1.1. Well, of course I thought to myself... "Wow...maybe I can keep going!?" New goal? 1.5 in 15! Well, imagine my delight when the clock hit 15 and my distance hit 1.5! I WAS DOING IT! But why stop there? Why not try for 2 miles in 20? I pushed, I could feel my face getting hot, and then BAM! 2.0 in 20!
So what do I do?!
Could it be possible?
Can I push a little further?
At 22 minutes I started to lose some stamina... At the 23 minute mark I was only at 2.29. It couldn't be! I had to push more! I found a great song and I hit my feet to the beat! It was slow-going, but at 28 minutes I did it and caught up to 2.8! I was DYING! But with 2 minutes to go I couldn't stop now! It was only 2 minutes! I can't even play a game of Candy Crush Saga in 2 little minutes! So I pushed...I hit it hard...I closed my eyes and RAN!
AND I DID IT!!!!!!!!
As the clock hit 29.59 I hit 3 miles run!
AND THE CROWD WENT WILD!!!!!!!!! "JENNI! JENNI! JENNI!"
(or at least it did in my head)
My next goal: Maintain it the next two trips :)
(And I might have rewarded myself with some Clearance buys from Victoria's Secret last night...)
