And even when your hope is gone Move along, move along just to make it through


I did it! I stuck to it! 2 minute walk, 10 minute run, 2 minute walk, 10 minute run, 2 minute walk , 10 minute run, 8 minute walk home!

First off I did not even want to go...but it was weird b/c I found myself changing and putting my sneakers on without thinking about it. During the second 10 minute run I was thinking, I am going to do a 5 minute run, 5 minute walk, 5 minute run instead of running 10 straight. But when I started the third 10 minute run I decided I could do it. I do need to thank Kanye, All American Regects and Diddy for helping me through that third 10 minute run!

It is really corny, but really cool, to tell you all how proud I am of myself for pushing through! I have never been very good at that - I am one to find a good excuse (good enough to even convince me) to stop when the going gets tough - and I did not stop!

When everything is wrong we move along
(Go on, go on, go on, go on)
When everything is wrong,
we move along Along, along, along
(All American Rejects)

You SHOULD be proud of yourself! Running is not an easy thing. I was the girl who couldn't even run a mile for that stupid Presidential fitness test in middle school. In fact, before 2 years ago, I had never even run an entire mile. So, I'm super qualified to advise you on proudness. :)

Hey thats Great, your doing awesome! In no time you will be running and not even realizing it.

I started my 1st marathon training with Team in Training and we started just like that, run 4 mins, walk 1 min, over time we got to 11 mins run 1 min walk. It worked and I finished!

Keep it up!

you asked me a while back about a Tempo Run.
Basic definition: a sustained run at faster than usual training pace.

Heres a good article on a few tempo ideas/time trials.

ps. let me know if you have any question.
