I've told you before how much I love my New Balance.... they seriously rock my world and it was with their help that yesterday, I achieved the (not so) impossible.
I ran 4 whole miles without stopping... that's the longest continuous run I've ever done. I never got that far in my 10k training last year, and I'd stopped for a walking break way before that in my 10k race last year too.
I'd been slacking off for ages with my training because I was so stressed about my interviews and yesterday I decided enough was enough!
4 miles has always been an elusive number for me.... it involves just a bit more stamina and a bit more perseverance. It's a scary sounding distance for "proper" runners... well not any more! I conquered it!!
I am by no means a fast runner - I average somewhere between 10.15 and 11.35 per mile most of the time but that's ok. I enjoy and and I know that the more I run, the easier it'll get and the faster I'll become.
I remember the days when running just 1 mile made me feel like I was going to die - now I can finish 4 miles feeling strong and powerful. It's a funny little thing but it's made the Great North Run in September feel a heck of a lot more achievable!
What have you done recently that you previously thought impossible?
