Doing The Impossible.

I have been really challenging myself a the gym this month.  For starters, I have stuck to my schedule of going three times a week.  Then I have been upping my weights every week and trying new exercises.

Today though, I did something I have never done before.  Okay, I did two things.  The second was whack my head off a piece of equipment and thought I had cracked the back of my head open.  But the first was much more impressive.

I RAN ON THE TREADMILL!

Did you get that?

I RAN ON THE TREADMILL!
 Okay, it was only for 1.5 minutes, walking a minute, and then run another 1 minute.  But it is a
start!  I don't run.  And I have never run on a treadmill ever.  It wasn't fast- just 4mph, but I had a huge grin on my face the entire time.  The grin wasn't just because I was super proud of myself, it was also because I couldn't get this out of my head:

You beat me on that one - I have yet to try a treadmill. I'm sure I'll end up in a heap at the tail-end of it, so I've used every excuse imaginable for many, mnay years...
