5 mile Milestone

I just wanted to make an entry in my blog today stating that I just ran 5 miles. That is, five miles, all at once. I did it in 55:57. I barely even walked any of it, I'd say about 4-5 minutes tops.

That is the first time I'm my life I have ever jogged that far so I just wanted to make a note of it so I can look back on it at some point and wonder....why?

It was nice that I burned just short of 600 calories doing it too!

I think I'll go have an ice cream sundae.

just kidding.

Congratulations on running five miles in less than an hour. That's a HUGE milestone.

Dude, that's awesome! So is this a thing where you won't go back to doing anything less? Or is it a one-time thing just to see if you could do it? Either way, that's very cool...and good time, too.

I dont really think I'll never do less, but I do want to start doing this much more often. I didnt plan on running this far actually. My plan was to just do a 5k. But after I finished that I felt like I could go further so I kept going. I thought about going up and doing a 10k but I was ready to get out of the gym so I stopped.
I do see doing an actual 10k somewhere in my future. My final running goal was to eventually run a half marathon.

That's just damned impressive. You and I were the same weight at one point, and now you're blazing trails for me. Great, great work!
