I did it!!!

I did it!

Remember the other day when I was beyond upset with myself for having a bad run and not being able to run for a whole 5 minutes?

Well today- I did it!

My workout was exactly the same one I completed on Saturday but today I actually completed my running parts without stopping! I am so proud of myself.

I don't want anyone to think that I am full out sprinting these runs- I'd refer to my running as more like a jog. I definitely am not running for speed- more so for distance and length of time. I want to be able to simply finish my 5K- not win it!

Now I just have to successfully finish one more workout this week to finish week 4, and I will be halfway done with this training program. The "badge" I earn at the end of the week is called "Halfway to 5K" so that is pretty exciting! The next run doesn't have me running any longer then 5 minutes at a time but I do have a shorter recovery time. My runs will be getting longer and by the end of this program, walking will be nonexistent in my routine. I'm definitely nervous but excited.

My reward when I finish my next run (hopefully on Thursday) will be one of these babies:

If I think 'chocolate chocolate chocolate' through my run there's a good chance I'm going to finish it ;)

Well I'm off to meet with my boss and a co-worker to view a school auditorium to see if it's a good fit for our annual recital. Then I will be having lunch and a meeting with my co-worker to discuss plans for our trip to Disney World with our students. We have a lot to talk about and figure out and we get to discuss one of my favorite topics- Disney World!

Have a great day everybody!
