I actually ran for 10 minutes, walked for 10 minutes, and then ran for 10 more minutes. I covered 2 1/2 miles this way (in 30 minutes). I thought I did pretty good since this was my first time running OUTSIDE. When I got home I marched in place 30 minutes. It was kind of a fluke, because I got my wires crossed with my friend, and apparently I did not have to get up at 5:30AM, but I was awake, so I decided to try running since there would be less people to see me that early.
The sorest thing afterward was my chest because I forgot to put on the high impact sports bra I had bought for running. Gotta remember that for next time. Ouch! I also really need to get some decent running shoes. I have a pair of Asics Gels I use for walking, but they are getting pretty old anyway. I'm saving up My Coke Rewards points to get a $10 off at Foot Locker, so that should offset the cost of a decent pair of running shoes.
My First goals for running- Get up EARLY and go running at least once a week in the morning. Run 30 minutes straight without stopping. Run 3 miles in 30 minutes instead of 2 1/2 miles (I know that's slow, but please remember I am short with short legs).
