C25K Update + Throwback Thursday


I take really simple things for granted.

Last night, when I got home from running, I took a warm shower and just sat down in the bath with the shower running over me.  In that moment, I was so thankful for running water.  Maybe that sounds a little silly, but there is nothing better than a good shower after a lot of sweating.

Yesterday was Week 4, Day 2 of C25K.  The workout was:

5 minute brisk Warm up Walk
3 Minute Run
2 Minute Walk
5 Minute Run
3 Minute Walk
((Turn Around))
5 Minute Run
3 Minute Walk
3 Minute Run
Cool Down walk until we get back to our cars

The time is messed up because we took a little break between the two 5 Minute runs, but the distance is accurate.  That's almost a 5k!!! woop woop!!!

Next week is going to be ROUGH!  Monday is three 5 Minute runs and then Friday is just one 20 Minute run.  Have they lost their minds?

I make it through the 3 minute runs just fine, but 5 minutes is hard.  It gets better each time I guess.


Completely unrelated, but my friend found this picture of us online this morning:

I love a good old picture where I can see the difference in myself.  Go compare this to birthday pics.  I'm so thankful I made this decision!  The pic was taken a few days after my first Lap Band consultation.

We are going to go to the All-White party again this year, so that we can remake this photo.


  1. Great job on C25k!! You'll rock those 5 minute runs! Can't wait to see the comparison pics.

  2. Yikes...20 minute run??? Good luck!! You're doing so awesome :)

  3. You are going to blow us all away at Color Vibe next month :)
