Awesome Workout

Monday, April 02, 2012

I continued my C25K training today with Week 5 Day 1 training. I expressed some concern to my husband this morning that I thought that I might not be able to do this. Run for an entire three minutes...

I did it! I didn't just do it, but I rocked this!! Not ONLY did I complete the training by running EVERY segment, but I extended it by an additional rep of walk 3 run 3. THEN I kept going and ran all out as fast as I could for 30 sec every minute for six more minutes!!

I am so AMAZED!! I think I am going to do this...

Even more amazing is that I am making lists of athletic equipment that I wish to purchase in the future. Who woulda thunk??

It's taken me many years and many tries, but I do enjoy running now. Some days it's a slower run for more miles to build endurance, some days it's lots of sprints to work on speed, some days it's run/walk/run/walk/run. I like seeing the improvement.

The last 5k I ran in 2011 started up a long hill. I pass that area several times each week. When I stop at the 4-way, I can see that hill. It's a great feeling to know that I ran all the way up!

    Woo Hoo!! Good for you.

I remember when I started out running, every week we all said the same thing..'I can't run for (1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10) minutes'. But every week I amazed myself & was able to run the minutes.

Keep up the great work, you CAN do this!!
