I DID IT!!! I finished couch to 5k like an hour ago. Woo!!! No one was waiting for me at the finish line though. *shrugs* I keep forgetting that my life isn't a movie...yet.
It feels good. I didn't run a whole 5k though. The couch to 5k program is more of a time/endurance trainer than it is distance, unless you can run a 10 minute mile. And to me, if you're not a runner, you're probably not running a 10 minute mile...yet. It does a good job of building you up to run for longer periods of time though. I really enjoyed doing this and may even attempt the 10k program. Look at me wanting to push myself further. Why couldn't I think of doing this a little earlier in life? Ha!
Color Me Rad is next Saturday and I think I'm ready. I've got another week to work on my speed. I'd like for the race to be my fastest time compared to what I've been running, but I want to make sure I'm still having fun too.
Next up I want to conquer/add stairs to my work out regime. We've got a monument in our downtown area that would be perfect to run up and down. I think after the race, that's what I'll tackle next. Alright, off to run these errands and get crafty...and do some laundry I suppose too.
