May 31, 2013


Total time: 25 mins
Distance: 1.77 mi

The screenshot I posted on April 30 says 25:40 and the log that is in my Runkeeper history says 25:31 and quite frankly I don't know why, so we'll just say 25 minutes because I'm sure at least five seconds are wasted just putting the phone back into my fanny pack runner's belt anyway. (Indiana Jones wears one!)*

The fact that I went from a 20 minute run the previous week to a 25 minute run this week managed to lodge the crazy notion in my head that I should be able to add five minutes every week. Which is kind of a lot, but in hindsight, I can tell you that I measure my runs in five-minute intervals. It's this weird quirk I have developed where I'm not allowed to stop unless it's an "even" five minute mark. (Five, the only even odd number, according to the brain of Kelly.)

At any rate, at this point, I am averaging about a 14.5 minute mile. I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure that that is pretty slow. But you know what? I can at least run a mile, and I could not care less at this point how long it takes me. 

*Hangover reference, anyone? It's a satchel! No, but seriously. It's not a fanny pack.
