I'm a Couch to 5K graduate!
It's been a while since my last post! I had to stop running for three weeks because of a groin injury. It really sucked! But I'm back and I was able to pick back up right where I stopped.
Last night I finished week 9 day 3 of the C25K progr... Read more
Finally done with W6D2!!!

Body, we need to talk
Weigh-in this morning was a disappointing 0.2 gain. It's really not the end of the world, except that I've been losing and gaining the same pound for the past month. I'm so close to the 20 pound loss mark too, it makes it even more discouraging!... Read more
I ran for 20 minutes
It feels weird to write it: I ran for 20 minutes straight. When I started C25K, I could hardly run more than 1 minute without feeling like I was going to die. And now here I am, running for 20 minutes.
The only disappointment is my lack of ... Read more

Week 4 is DONE!
I went out with the jogging stroller yesterday afternoon, ready to finish week 4 of the Couch to 5K program. I started the first 3 minutes run and something didn't feel right. I thought I was going to die halfway through, which is weird because ... Read more

I'm still doing Couch to 5K and things are going well even though it's getting harder. I did Week 4 Day 2 today, which means I ran 3 min., walked 1.5, ran 5, walked 2... Read more
C25K - Week 3 Day 2

Week 3 is HARD!!! I was doing ok on Week 2 with... Read more
Running when sick
Do you run or work out when you're sick?
I have a bad cold right now but I really didn't want to skip a running day. So I went for it and did C25K Week 2 Day 3. And it went pretty well. It wasn't my fastest run but it wasn't my slowest. The... Read more
