I completed the Spark People Couch to 5K Walking Program a week ago today with a walk of 3.27 miles. I got a tremendous high and sense of accomplishment to be able to successfully complete something that I started and quit so many times before. Well when I finished that program, I left that team and joined the Official 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program. I am having trouble getting started on it. I keep meaning to, then I find an excuse not to. I have really been thinking about it and I am really starting to think I am just psyching myself out. I could do the walking, I walk all the time. Something about taking the step from walking to jogging, then eventually to running (hopefully) is making me nervous. I really want to do it. I want to be a runner. But I can't seem to find a way around this mental stumbling block.
