thoughts: hallelujah! i completed couch to 5K! it wasn’t easy for this super out of shape kid, but i did it! super pumped, as clipart so obviously conveys. when i started the program, i was definitely emphasizing the couch portion of the title. and now, though i’m not fast or a super awesome runner, i am running 5k distances! i am so incredibly excited.
thoughts on today’s run: today wasn’t an easy run. apparently my body quite likes the (at least) one day rest between runs, but if i wanted to finish this week, it had to happen this morning because of the impending storm. so i was pretty pokey. don’t care though–no cheating, no worries.
as for the future: i don’t know yet. i know i’ll be working on my speed in the upcoming weeks. i’m looking forward to being off a training plan as i can then do what i feel i need to do. after i feel comfortable with my speed, i think i’ll do the bridge to 10K program. lots to think about, so we’ll see. i’ll definitely keep you updated.
