C25K Week 6

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

I am working on week 6 of C25k and I am loving it. It has most definitely been a challenge but the feeling of completing each week is just so amazing. I never thought in a million years I would be able to run the way I am running now. I find myself looking forward to hopping on the treadmill every night and running (something I have always hated). For the first time in a very long time I am truly enjoying exercise. I find myself making extra time in my day to get my workouts in, and when I don't I feel a little guilty.

I can't wait to see what else I discover on this journey. Everyone here is so motivating and inspiring I only hope that I am able to motivate and inspire someday as well.

    That's wonderful! I finished C25K about a month ago and am getting ready to run my second 5K on Saturday. I also just started training for a half marathon! And, I could barely run a mile less than 4 months ago. It's amazing! (I posted a longer post on this topic earlier today.)

    Anyway, congrats! It's wonderful that you are accomplishing so much... and enjoying yourself!

    Congratulations, you are doing a great job.
    I had never thought I wanted to be a runner, until the day that I decided that I did, haha. I felt so empowered when I did that first 20 minute run (which I had been dreading from week 1, haha)
    You're almost there...keep up the great work.

    Woohoo!!! I remember feeling the same way during C25K...and guess what - over a year after graduating I STILL am excited to run every day that it is on the schedule! :-)

    Keep enjoying it!

    Mandy! You are doing so awesome! You should really be so proud! I know exactly how you feel...I never thought I would like running, but now I love it and need it. I hate rest days because I miss that feeling you get when you finish a good run.

    You are inspirational. You are here, giving this your all and that is so very inspirational to me!
