I don’t know what I was thinking… I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up with this blog. Oh well… I forgive me.
I am very proud to say that I am near the end of week 6! yea me! I tackled that 20 minute run. It really wasn’t as hard as I made it out to be. Today I completed week 6 Day 2 and its the last day of interval running. I had to run for 10 minutes, walk 3 then run for 10.. and I have to say that I am actually glad that there is no more walking. On Friday I run for 25 minutes straight, no stopping and I am actually looking forward to it. I have noticed that its harder to get going again once I stop and walk I would rather keep running! Can you believe I actually said that! ME, one who couldn’t run for more than 3 minutes at a time without freaking out. I now believe in myself and realize that I can do this.. I can run. I can and am becoming a runner. And it does feel good!
Now its time to take it outside! I don’t think there is a treadmill 1/2 marathon out there. How great would that be.. I could watch a whole episode of the biggest loser while running! score! But I don’t think that’s going to happen so I need to start hitting the trails and thankfully Spring is finally here! I won’t be able to run outdoors during the week at least until the older little man is out of school, so until then I am going to make Sunday’s my outdoor run days. Hubby can stay home with the kids and I can find a nice peaceful train to call my own.
My first 5K is next month and I am actually starting to get excited for it! who would have thought..
