I'm at the point now where I am running 2-25 minute sessions with 1 minute of walking in between. In 2 days, I will be running 2-30 minute sessions. And in 4 days, I'll be running for a full hour with no walking.
And it gets hard. And holy cow, in the last 10 minutes, I'm constantly checking to see when I'll be DONE. And eventually, I am done.
What surprises and pleases me is that I still look forward to running, I still FINISH the program every day, and I feel good when I'm done. So, I think that makes me a runner now.
I also think that makes me NOT a blogger. Interesting!
