Week 8 Day 1

Awesome day!! No, the weather did not cooperate with us again. Apparently Mother Nature thinks it's hilarious to have clear sky on our off days and rain when we need to get out there. We were all ready to head out and then Runkeeper said it had a error and needed to be reinstalled so I sent the hubby and kiddos on ahead while I tried to reinstall the app superfast. Got that done finally and needed to catch up with the family, so decided to do a light jog with the warmup instead of walking. I totally got in the zone with the music and the scenery and the drizzling rain. Kept my normally flaming hot body rather cool! By the time I got to mile 2 and was heading home and knew I would be at or more 5k by the time I got home I decided I was going to run the whole thing to see how well I might be able to do a 5k in. AND I DID IT! I ran for the 5 minute warmup, the 28 minute run and the 5 minute cooldown, that's 38 minutes! I can't believe that 8 weeks ago I was having serious issues running for 1 minute. (So many exclamation marks I know, lol). It feels SO good to push your body to a point where you never thought you could be. This is totally how I feel...

  1. This is so exciting! I remember going through all of these same emotions when I was doing the C25K!
