I am so proud of you for that Christina, not least for that final bike section. To lose 12 minutes 42 off that time, is one heck of an improvement, considering it also meant you were doing 5 miles in 6 minutes, that's a difference of 3 minutes, 7 seconds per mile, versus 1 minutes 12 seconds per mile, a grand difference of 1 minute 55 seconds per mile shaved off.
Seriously, seriously impressed with you misses; that has seriously given me a warm feeling inside and as you say, you made this improvement happen in just 3 months.
I'm sending you a BIG PAT ON THE BACK, because I am probably nearly as blown away as you are.
This is what I always believed in. This is what I always thought was possible. That you could become this kind of person, who was consistently achieving, progressing and doing well; not stop starting, or stuttering a lot and now you're starting to become that rolemodel type of person, I thought you could one day become.
I KNOW this will continue to work out for you and I KNOW you can still do so much more. I want you to be so proud of yourself, because you are a 24 carat gold sweetheart and I am so happy that after all this time, the tears, crushed hopes and emotional flagellation, when it felt like it was all going wrong, it's finally going so well for you, because you deserve it.
