The Art of Slow Slow Slow Running

NikeI ran 1 mile last night and it took me 18:45. I saw a post on the Couch To 5K’s Facebook profile the other day that questioned whether someone made a typo when they said they ran a mile in 33 minutes.

They couldn’t imagine someone only running one mile in 33 minutes. My contribution to that discussion was pretty good, so I posted it on the Can Wii Do It? blog this evening.

Joel Wagner (<strong><a href="">@sywtt</a></strong>) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. <strong><a href="">So You Want To Teach?</a></strong> is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.

  1. Well done!!! I still have some catching up to do but am starting to really love running – never thought it would take me 43 years to say that – will be out for my run tomorrow so let’s see what I can get up to :)

  2. How fast you run isn’t nearly as important as if you run. No matter how fast you get, chances are there is someone out there that is faster. For many people out there 18:45 is a great accomplishment, and for others that 33 minutes seemed almost unreachable at some point. I commend you for taking the initiative to participate at all. Good luck.
