I find more and more along this journey that I am surprising myself more and more . I know it is just natural progression with the process but I kinda like it .
Today I ran around doing a bunch of errands and picked up my oldest at camp . It was a busy day and quite frankly I wanted to go home and nap . I love to nap on the weekends . I think it is something my body needs. I sat here for a bit and decided to go for a walk. Got myself all ready, playlist loaded , headphones on and hit the pavement. But this time when I hit the pavement, I decided to run . And I ran and ran kept going and going ….. Wait for it …… Wait for it …
I RAN OVER A MILE WITHOUT STOPPING !!!!!
I can’t believe it! Not sure how far over a mile it was but based on my previous walks around my complex, it was definitely over a mile .Granted it wasn’t a fast run, and there was that one squirrel that was running along near me, then passed me , but dammit , I went the distance !!!
So I hit my mile plus and then walked it out a bit and as I walked I was thinking how proud I am and how I cannot believe I just did over a mile when it happened . My iTunes shuffled to an awesome song . ” I’m a believer” by the Monkees ! I kicked up my heels cause I believed in myself and ran the rest of the way home . Yes I know the song does not refer to “believing in yourself” but it was enough to get me going . Now, if I could just find a ” just keep swimming “ song besides the Dory one, lol!
I can’t wait to get out there tomorrow and see how far I can go . I got this !
