I ended up working a 12 hour day on Tuesday so I didn't manage to get my run in. After work today, although it was the last thing I wanted to do I headed up to the gym to get in a short run with my new shoes. It was extremely busy but I managed to snag a treadmill.
I varied my running speed and managed to run a few minutes at 4.1mph. I was so happy to hit that goal today. Not once but twice while running 2:1's. (2min running 1 minute walking). For the first time since I started using the treadmill I managed to run a mile in under 18 minutes!
I loved hitting that speed goal! I now know that I can hit that 18 minute mile threshold for the BMO Vancouver Marathon on May 3rd. I have 80 days to go before the half marathon. I know I can go the distance, I just have to work my way up to it.
Today's run has given me the confidence boost I needed!
