C25K Graduate

It took me a little more than eight weeks, complements of the holidays, but I finally graduated the Couch to 5K program.

I have to say that the week 8 day 3 run was amazing. As I completed the workout and heard the words in my head (through my earbuds) that I was finished, I felt such a feeling of accomplishment. I had set a goal and achieved it and it was an amazing feeling.


My C25K graduation run.

So much of what I do is for the boys, Bill and the family in general, to do something that was only for me was kind of nice.

So what’s next?

I’m moving on to the 10K Trainer. It’s a 14 week program that takes you from the couch to a 10K (6.2 miles). I’ve already completed the first eight weeks by doing the C25K so only 6 more weeks and I’ll be running a 10K with ease…I hope.

I’ve also set the goal of doing twelve 5K races this year. It seems like a lofty goal but really it’s only one a month and in the spring and summer I could easily do one a weekend.

Oh, did I mention that I also want to run in the Broad Street Run this year? A super fast ten mile race in Philadelphia. Not sure I’ll get into that since they’re doing a lottery for entrance but if I can’t get in I’ll find another ten miler.

Then on to my ultimate goal of the Disney Half Marathon in 2014. The thought of running 13.1 miles through all of the Disney parks sends chills down my spine. I have such a love for Disney World, running a race through it would be a dream come true.

Until all that I’ll take it one day at a time and try not to get sick or injured.

Do you have any fitness goals for 2013? How about a fitness accomplishment?
