Half way there


Recommended Posts

Hey all. So I just finished Week 5 Day 1 today. In the rain. It was horrible but I did it. I am incredibly proud that I got my butt out of bed at 5 am and still went out in the pouring rain. I have started C25K before but got sick and stopped but now years later I'm doing it. My legs scream at me constantly to stop and my brain tries to tell me a skip day would be ok. I tell them both to shut up and I just do it. It's how it started for me. I had bought some Bluetooth headphones and an arm band a while back to "motivate" me to run. Didn't help. What did was setting my alarm at 5am and getting out of bed when it went off and just did it. I'm 32 and have an almost 4 year old. I'm doing this for her just as much as myself. I don't want her growing up with a lazy dad. I want to run around with her and not be out of breath. My diet still sucks and I have a few other unhealthy things to overcome as well but this is the first step. I haven't missed a run yet and actually I accidentally skipped week 2 but just kept going. Hoping it doesn't come back to bite me. Well that's my story. I'm hoping for many more weeks to come even after my first 5k. So just remember. Just get up and get going. It's that easy (for the most part). Cheers from Dayton Ohio!
