My first 10k!

Well, today was an awesome run!  I ran my first 10k!!! Although it was on the slower end I just told myself I wanted to get it done.  I ran the first 2 miles, walked the next 2.2, and ran the last 2!  I ran the first two miles in 18:30 which is the fastest I think I’ve ever done that and I ran the 4 miles in around 38 minutes which is a 10 minute improvement 🙂


Starting Weight: 296.3 lbs

Current Approx. Weight: As of two weeks ago 211 (prob a bit higher now)

Distance: 6.2 mi

Total Time: 1:17 min

Average Mile pace: 12:28/mi

Fastest Mile pace: 8:56/mi

Average Speed: 4.8 mph

Max Speed: 7.5 mph

Average Heartrate: 151 bpm

Calories burned: 927

Thought of the day:
As I went for this run I had an epiphany.  It is so  important to be positive in my life.  Even when things that we view as bad occur, there is usually a silver lining that you and I can take from it!
