|Afterwards, so proud!|
As most of you know from my posts, I have been training for a 5K with the C25KFree App on my phone. The program is an 8 week program that gradually gets you to where you need to be to run a 5K without stopping. As the weeks progressed in the program, I didn't think I would be able to complete the task at hand. One week it would jump from running 2 minutes at a time to running 5 then to running 9 etc until the last week you reach a 30 minute run no stopping. I was so proud of myself for sticking with the program for 8 weeks being that this is the most busy time of the year for teachers. I think the running 3 times a week (totally doable btw) was a good stress reliever plus I love setting goals for myself. Throughout most of the program, I was running 11.30 minutes a mile. Yes I know, that is slow. I didn't care about pace at all since my goal was to do what the program said not do it at a rapid rate plus I did the majority of my training pushing my sweet Kaylee in the jogging stroller which makes for a much more difficult run, so running without her made the race much easier!
