Today I feel a bit weak! My calf muscles are a bit tired and I feel a little burn in my knee. Then I smile!!! There is a very good reason I am feeling like this! Last night I conquered Week 4 Day 2 of the couch to 5K program! I tried week 4 last week and gave in! It was hard and I didn't have the stamina to keep up with the program! I could not last the running! For some reason I am determined to do this! Somewhere deep inside, I have found this super cool determination that I have never had before! My goal is to run 5K and although this may seem small to a lot of you, for me, in my little world, this is huge! I am so thankful for my determination! Even after being knocked down last week I got back up, put my shoes on, put a smile on my face and I tried again! And I DID IT! I absolutely did it without any giving up or cheating! I am so so so proud of myself! I have one more hurdle to get through this week - day 3 - then I have successfully finished and completed week 4! You know what that means? I AM HALF WAY! I am half way to my goal!!! Half way to running 5K!!! I promised myself at the start of the program that I would buy myself a present half way through! That little bit of extra motivation! I originally wanted a running jacket but now I have my eye on an iPod arm band! So Friday I will conquer Day 3 and then on the weekend I can get my reward!
I am so thankful for my determination! It makes me so happy! I love this new found passion for running!
