Do the Couch to 5k running plan (read all 43 entries…)
Surprised Myself

Today I was hoping to complete W6D3 by jogging 22 minutes. But as 20 and then 22 minutes got closer, it felt like I’d finally gotten into a running groove, relaxed and able to keep going. So I decided to try and make it 2 miles.

I kept jogging and still felt decent. Then I started thinking just maybe I can make 5K. I did NOT stop, but continued 2 1/2 miles then 3 miles. To my surprise I not only made it 3.1 miles, but could have kept going!

This is the running breakthrough I’ve been waiting for. Today is my first time EVER to run 5K without taking any walking breaks!

I’m still feeling a little shocked that I actually pulled that off…:D

I know you’ve been working on this for a while now, and I’m thrilled with your success. Often it’s our minds that set limitations that our bodies don’t have. I’m glad that you were able to get your mind out of the way and let your body show you what you’re capable of accomplishing. Great job.

Thank You Todd

Your support and cheers along the way have made this accomplishment all the more joyous…:)
