3.2 Miles in 56 Minutes!!!

Last Wednesday I started journaling my food on My Fitness Pal and walking. When I walked on Wednesday and Thursday I walked for nearly an hour each day but had no idea what the distance was until Friday when a friend turned me on to Map My Run. I figured out that I had been walking 2.8 miles. WOW! That's awesome for a beginner. Since I was able to map my walk and figure out exactly how many miles I would be walking, I decided to bump up the miles to at least 3 since I will be walking in my first 5k on Saturday and I don't want to have to get in the stroller and have someone push me to the finish line!

Anyhooo....Friday I mapped out 3.2 miles and started but as I got close to the end my feet started hurting so stinkin' bad that I ended the walk a tad shy of the 3.2 miles. I was disappointed but my feet were in tough shape. I was walking like a 90 year old the rest of the night and most of Saturday. It was BAD! Well, I didn't walk on Saturday or Sunday so I knew I had to get out and walk tonight especially since the scale is taunting me and playing mind games with me. (DAMN YOU SCALE) Sorry. Well, I set out for my walk, pushing my Macy in the stroller, with the iPod jammin' I walked....

I walked....

I walked...

And 56 minutes later, sweaty as heck, aching and huffing and puffing....

I did it!!!

3.2 Stinkin' Miles!!! (Insert HAPPY DANCE with the Big Butt Song playing in the background)

Yup!!! Soooo dang proud of myself! And Macy did a great job in the stroller for an hour!

My earlier post was written by Debbie Downer. She gets real down when the scale doesn't move in the RIGHT direction. She's better now. Well actually, I beat the crap out of her and told her to shut her trap and stop bitchin'! She deserved it! She gets me all flustered!

Anyway...I plan on walking every night this week and then my first ever 5k on Saturday! So excited! Maybe next year I can actually RUN it?!?


  1. Good for you . The more you can work out and make it a habit the better. That is probbaly the one thing I never did well and wish i had !

  2. Yay! You tell that band who's boss!! I'm so proud of you, that's a tremendously long walk!! Good luck on the 5k, I hope to do one by the end of the year, but I am nowhere near ready yet! I think I speak for everyone when I say we expect to see pictures of you glowing at the finish line!! =)

  3. For anyone interested in running . Try couch to 5k. Google it. its an awesome program , i hvae started it twice lol but have always had to stop for one reason or another.
    It slowly works you up to running a 5k .
