I'm trying to build my running endurance so I can do the whole Turkey Trot without walking. With that in mind, I ran 2 miles today without stopping in 24 minutes. It's slower than race pace, but I didn't take any walk breaks. That's improvement in my book.
However, the last 4 minutes were hard. I really wanted to stop, but it's impossible to stop when you've got less than 5 minutes to go. I put a towel over the display and watched the last bit of Elmo's World on Sesame Street. I never ever thought I'd be so distracted by Sprout, but it's working out to be a great way to forget about the pain.
