I DID IT!
On Wednesday, for the first time in my life mind you, I ran 3.10 miles….that’s a 5k!! The “Couch to 5k” program really does work wonders on your endurance levels and helped me reach one of my longest hope for fitness goals. I completed the 5k on an incline level of two on the treadmill and my finish time was 27 minutes and 48 seconds. It isn’t the best of times but I definitely look forward to bettering that time … who knows … maybe I’m becoming … *gasp*…a runner!!!
Now that I’ve at least reached a fitness goal of mine, I went out and celebrated and bought some new workout clothes
I’m also looking forward to running a few 5ks this fall and this winter since that’s when most big races come to the southern area. This is the race I currently have my sights on : http://www.spartanrace.com/index.html Has anyone done this? Looks like so much fun! Can’t wait till they come to Atlanta next March.
Here is the link to the calendar that I’ve been using to train: http://www.c25k.com/c25k_treadmill.html. I’ve been doing this program on an accelerated rate where I run every day rather than only three times a week. If I can do this, so can you — get running!!
