The world is ending! I RAN.

Pardon me while I YELLLLL!   :)

I just spent 45 minutes on the treadmill!!  At at least seven minutes of it were spent RUNNING!  Sporadically for a minute at a time but they were done- By me!!  Most of it at 3 mph (don't laugh!) but 1.5 minutes of it at 4 mph.  

I asked hubby to take a picture of me and it looks wonky due to me moving in it.  Don't ya think?

 Then he was a butt and took a 10 second video of me running.  I don't look like I am running- more like a fast walk. At least now we know I am a forefoot strider so that will be good to know when shoe shopping in future.  I can say that as I come down I feel the back hip padding jiggle/jerk. When he told me I was a forefooter I tried to heel strike and it just feels like I am slamming down stomping.  Hubby is a heel striker but he is a string bean so I am sure it doesn't feel like as much of a stomp to him with long legs. I am a shortie at just over 5'2 though so my legs are much shorter.

WARNING:  Cuss word and movement!!!!
You need to turn your head a bit.  I don't know how to turn it.  

I had him grab a picture of me when I was done.  Boy do my pits stank right now.  tee-hee
Sexy right there

Running wasn't that scary at 3 mph.

I think you can see the treadmill movement. ::grins::


  1. You are awesome, lady <3 Keep up the good work.

  2. (you BETTER click on that link, too)

    FANTASTIC work with the running. I find that my body, like, shuts down or something when I get on the treadmill. I can walk in the living room with Leslie and I can handle my shin splints when I'm out on the pavement, but...damn...the treadmill....Phew! Let alone to RUN on the treadmill?!?!? You are amazing!!! Seven minutes would have probably made me puke or pass out. I'm not lyin'.

    Great work!

    And, in the words of Beyonce, "A little sweat ain't never hurt nobody." GREAT job gettin' bodied. :)
