Yesterday I started week three of C25k. I was nervous about the 3 minute runs. But I did them and even ran an extra bit at the end just because I felt I could - and I did!
I still can't fathom running 30 minutes straight without stopping. But after cruising around other blogs I see that pretty much everyone feels that way - and yet they do it!
It was tough at the beginning yesterday....the wind was blowing at my face and it was darn chilly. I also started getting pelted with random raindrops that thankfully never progressed into anything more substantial. I also knew when I turned around at the end of the street the wind would be in my favor which helped adjust the attitude.
I'm getting hooked on this running thing. I've dropped 1.5 pounds. Not much... but I feel tighter - if that makes sense. Not so blobby. Like underneath things are starting to firm up from the weights and the C25K stints. I'm hoping (praying) that when the weight finally does start coming off that I'll have some nice lean muscle to reveal underneath. It'll be awhile - but I can wait. I finally feel like I'm doing something worthwhile that I haven't even thought once about abandoning. It's a good feeling.
I'm curious....those of you who have"graduated" from C25K....what are some of the positive things you noticed as the weeks progressed? Go ahead- do your own little infomercial here because I know there are lurkers out there wanting to know as much as I do!
Right now I'm off to get my nails done (the one little bit of pampering I allot for myself every 3 weeks.) And the running shoes too. They were a splurge bit one I'll never regret!
