But. I. Did. It!
While my time is nothing to brag about, I'm more interested in just not collapsing in a heap before I reach the distance goal. With my short stature, I'll never be a speed-demon. So it's endurance we're working on.
I did a quarter-mile warm-up at about 3.5 mph, four miles straight at 4.5 mph and then a gradual decline in speed for another quarter-mile. Sixty-one and a half boring treadmill minutes. And as you can clearly see, I was quite a puddle of sweat when I finished.

For most of last year I rarely snacked in the evening, but in the last few months I've been very sloppy about that. I feel like I need to shake myself for picking up that poor habit again.
Last week I weighed myself on Tuesday instead of Monday; I'll keep doing that this year since that's how I started out. I've no idea what to expect, but I'm hopeful! Hope you all had a great weekend!
