Couch to 5K - End of Week 1

Has anyone completed this program??

Well I have finally decided to follow a program for running...crazy concept I know but I have tried to get into running for way too long.  I figured with this program, I can't go wrong...right?  LOL 

It's basically a nine week program where you slowly go from more walking than running to obviously being able to run 3.1 miles aka 5k without walking at all.  All by doing three 2-30 minute workouts a week.  Shoot I do that anyways!!

I want to sign up for a 5k race for the weekend after I finish or the following weekend to see how good of a time I can get!!! I have a personal goal that I want to beat and get personal best time so far was from MY FIRST RACE EVER! Don't you think I should be improving?? haha Of course I have excuses (shin splints, hot weather, blah blah blah) that have hindered me since that first race but I need to stop with the excuses and just push forward!!

So for the next nine weeks on Fridays I will post about my progress and how I am feeling.  Today I completed W1D3 (week 1, day 3) and honestly, it felt good.  It really wasn't too difficult this week but in looking ahead to future weeks, I just can't imagine doing it but I gotta get in the mind set that I CAN DO THIS!!!!

Happy Friday!

You can do it. :) Just LOVE the burn that it gives your legs, your chest, your throat. Soon enough it'll be exhilarating!
