A month ago I posted about running again for the first time in 3 years. I laced up and got out there following the C25K program. Now (despite getting some awful flu for a week), 4 weeks later I am feeling and doing great. Today I ran for 6 minutes straight and clocked my first 13 minute mile! In comparison my first run was a 17 minute mile.
I’ve also signed up for a 5K that will be in another 4 weeks. And my goal is to do the whole thing without stopping/walking. Or maybe just a little break in the middle . Either way, I’m just excited to complete it and feel like I’ve made a change.
One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. If I can do it, so can you! So get out and do something good for your body.
If your interested in C25K, I’m using an iphone app called Get Running that I really like. If you have another app to recommend, I’d love to hear about it.
