This morning I finished week 5 day 2! I'm definitely getting to a point in the program where it's not "easy". I'm trying to get into a routine so that I complete each week of training during the calendar week. Sunday is day 1, Tuesday is day 2, and Friday is day 3. Week 5 day 3 is a 20 minute run with no breaks. I'm nervous about it, but as the little engine that could says, "I think I can!". Pssh, I know I can! Friday here I come!
It's helping that I have the right attitude. I really am enjoying my runs. It's not a chore to go out and get my workout done, and even if I struggle, I feel great afterwards. So much so that I've upped my goal... 10k here I come! I downloaded a program that is just the continuation of the C25k program. So I'll be staying on my current pace for the 5k (which Sakief and I run officially on December 5), and then continue on afterwards.
Sakief has just started training for a marathon. I think I owe some of my "success" to my competitive side. Not that I ever want to run a marathon (seriously, never, if I say something crazy about running a marathon, slap me), but if he's running and doing well, then I want to be too!
Only 10 runs left until I finish the program, ahh!!
