(74) Mile without stopping

I finally did it! Sure, it's not as fast as I would've liked, but I really had to push myself at this point so it counts. I haven't been to the gym consistently for maybe 3-4 months, I went twice last week (both days on the elliptical) and I've gone Mon-Wed this week (all three days on the treadmill). Tonight, I walked .15 mile and then pushed myself to continue at a solid avg of 4.4 mph to get to 1.15 miles (repeating the song 3-4 times).

I think I need to find a new song though...maybe I'll go through the hundreds of songs I have to find ones at similar speeds. And if you're curious what song I currently (over)use, it's "Corner of the Earth" by Jamiroquai (my favorite musician ever). Here it is for your viewing and listening pleasure:



And now, time for some food before I pass out!

Way to go - I hope I can get there eventually. The last time I was in running shape, I liked to run to the album In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3 by Coheed and Cambria. It might not be your style, but the beat was perfect for my pace and the subject matter riled me up. :D
