I just got back from a run with Matt and I just hit a major running accomplishment for myself so I wanted to write a quick blog post about it.
As you my know I am not a very good runner. I can run a little on the treadmill but I have a mental block when it comes to running – especially outside. I’m working on it and a while back Matt and I decided to start the C25K program. We’ve completed week 3 and were to start week 4.
On our drive home today we started talking about running and about distance running. Without telling you word-for-word our conversation we decided to just run today and see how far we (or I)could go. We came home had a bagel and some pb and put on a running shoes and off we went.
We ended up running 3km.
I know that might not seem like a lot for some runners out there but I have never run more then 2km outside – EVER!! I am very proud of this accomplishment. We completed it in just under 20 mins (19:15) and our second 1.5km was faster then the second half so I’m getting better.
Anyways, I’m now going to shower and figure out what’s for supper. I hope everyone else enjoyed a beautiful sunny day too!

Question: Does anyone else have a recent accomplishment that they are proud of? I really never thought I’d ever be able to run farther then 2km and accomplishing that goal just helps to boost my confidence in running.
