I DID IT!!!!

I have been running this Couch to 5K program for the last 9.3 weeks. This week my friend and I completed the program, all 9.3 weeks of it. Boy, was it hard. And today was the day I actually hit the 5k mark, 3.1 miles! Yeah, there were a few stops here and there, but I did it!! The time is atrocious, but that will get better!!




You can check out the whole program at the Couch to 5k site. It totally helps to have a friend running with you and cheering (or laughing) you on. Our next goal is a 5K race, hopefully soon. I have to convince the BFF, she isn't quite sold on it yet. But, I told her there are cool t-shirts involved. We will see??


I have my cool app on my iPhone that lets me know when to run and when to walk (or fall down!!). I love, love, love this app.



Then I came home from the Y and the "Princess" and I baked some banana nut bread. Glad I ran this morning :)




Hope your weekend was great!!

Hey Thanks for Visiting! :) There is still one more day left on the husband project so feel free to stop in tomorrow for the challenge! :) I'm also hoping to do a giveaway for the husband project eventually :)

I love that you are doing the couch to 5k! :) I'm a runner at heart, however, I havent run at all since I've had my little guy 6 months ago!! lol - BUT - your post inspired me to get up and run tomorrow! :) Love your pictures - I love love love trail running!! :) However, I think part of that might be because nobody is really ever on our trails around here, and that way I know nobody will see me run lol !:)
