I never dreamed that I would ever run a 5 K. It was only a Virtual 5K because I never thought that I could run the Whole thing. I found the 5K training program here on SparkPeople and I joined the Rookie training program. When I started it and did day 1 I thought to myself that I would never be able to run the whole thing even then but I continued on as it was set up and followed it week by week. Even week 8 I had my doubts that I would be able to run the whole thing but I read the program again before doing my Virtual race Coach Jen had said that you would be ready to run the whole thing when done so this morning at 6:30am I took off and kept in my mind that Coach Jen had said in her program that you be ready to run the whole thing and so I kept running and finished it in 35 min 35 seconds never stopping to walk tell the end and could not believe it I did it wow even in high school I could not run all the way around the track once in gym class. It is amazing what you can do with the right tool and determination. I really have to thank SparkPeople I joined the training program because I wanted a goal but doubted that I would ever be able to run the whole time but I listened to what I read and push myself t do it like the program said and did it and it feels so good to do something that you never dreamed of doing
Thanks for all the Support and tool to do it!!!
