Big Mile Stone

For the first time in my entire life, I have run over 3 miles without walking. Can you believe it?!?! I didn't stop to walk! Not once!

I need to take a moment to let this sink in..........ok, done.

Ok. So it was amazing! I didn't feel like running when I got home, but my hubby talked me into it. I wanted to turn around at the edge of the neighborhood, but just then Bentley turned around (he was running with my husband) with a "Come on mommy!" look in his eyes, so I kept going. We didn't stop to walk at all! I ended up chasing both of them after mile 1.5. I did slow down to trot around mile 2.25, but I kept it going. Running the last quarter mile felt amazing. I hurt from head to toe, my legs wanted to quit, but I was smiling and I pushed through.

Now I'm blogging, then stretching. After the stretching I will be icing my shin. It didn't hurt at all while I was running, but I don't want to give it something to complain about later.

So freakin' pumped right now. This is huge for me!

Please visit my Yoga post and let me know what kinds of yoga experiences you have had and if you feel like they benefit you as a runner. I need some ideas about DVDs to purchase or good reasons to join a yoga class/studio.
