A New Measure of Progress

I realize these posts are getting kind of boring around here - blah, blah, blah I ran for 5 minutes, blah, blah, blah I ran for 10 minutes.  So sorry if that doesn't satisfy.  For me though, it's about the most exciting thing I have going for me in the endurance world, so it keeps my mind active.  So for today's post about what I did today, I am going to take a different angle.

You see, up until recently, I was measuring progress by how many minutes I was running or whether I crossed the 1 mile threshold.  But not anymore!  I've got a new metric that classifies what I am doing as officially running:

I now run for more time than it takes me to get dressed and ready to run

It's all about the little victories around here and this is certainly one of them.  It always felt kind weird that I'd spend more time getting ready to run than actually running.  But not now.  No more!  Progress...

progress is progress... :-)

How's the biking and swimming?

Eh...not really happening. I lost the mojo for those and haven't been really motivated much for partaking in anything other than running (we always want what we can't have). I've done a few rides and swims here and there, but nothing too much to write home about...
