C25K - Week 9!!!!

I completed C25K on Tuesday evening, just in time for my race on Saturday!!! Can't wait btw!

I did 3.1 miles in 30 minutes and 45 seconds. Pretty proud of that time considering I hadn't ever run 2 miles until about 4 weeks ago!

I know I have said this a bazillion times before, but if you are interested in running you should totally try out C25K. It made running accessible and much easier than trying to train on your own. I think I've said this before, but the first time I started running before my wedding I expected to be able to run 1 mile one week and move up to 2 the next... It didn't work and I got discouraged and quit. C25K provided me with a real training program that had appropriate and attainable targets! Perfect for someone who gives up when they don't succeed the first time!

I'm thinking about starting "Bridge to 10K"... I'm a nervous Nelly about this one, but I figure I felt the same way about the other runs I did and I finished those and felt awesome afterward. We'll see if I start it...

Loves!

Congrats, that's awesome! The weather this weekend is supposed to be gorgeous, so you should be in good shape for your race. Are you doing the St. Paddy's Day Dash?

Congrats on finishing the training! The Mr. & I just recently decided to do a 5k in late March or early April and we aren't following C25K exactly but using its ideas is really helping us out!
