Guys, I don't even know how to contain my awesome feelings right now. I am SO super stoked, and I can't pretend to hide it!

Yesterday, after much contemplation and a bit of reading, I decided that I want to try to do the C25K program. Everyone seems to rave about how wondeful it is, and I've always wished I was better at running.

Today... I did Week 1, Day 1...


I did it! I really, really did it! Day one is a five minute warmup, followed by 60 seconds of running alternating with 90 seconds of walking, and a five minute cooldown. Comes out to 31 minutes, and I freaking DID it!!!! :carrot: I ran the entire time when I was supposed to, I made great use of my walking time to even my breathing out if I needed it... And I got home more sweaty than I think I've ever been in my freaking life! :lol: So happy right now. SO, so happy!

Great job! Know that every Mon, Wed and Friday morning I'm at my gym, doing the same thing! So excited, yet nervous, to try the next week's workout!

Woo! So happy for you! Keep it up! I am sure we are all interested in hearing how this works out for you!

Awesome! I started with C25K, also, and remember what an accomplishment it felt like, doing that first workout. :celebrate: Congratulations!

Good job! I'm looking at the library to see if any of these are available!

that is sooo awesome! My DH convinced me to do that in Jan. Before then I couldn't run one minute without needing an oxygen mask!!! I remember being so scared of the 5 min run *gasp*...then read ahead and saw there would be a 28 min run.. what? are you kidding me?

now i have to say running is one of my fav things. I even ran a 4.2 mile run in April with a friend and now we are training for the half marathon in Jan 2011. It really can change you.

I am very proud of you..since only a few months ago I was in your same shoes! WTG!!!

Great job! I started the C25K training maybe a week and a half ago but I am repeating week 1. I have had problems with running in the past and don't want to over do it. Congratulations and keep it up!

Aw man if you were just a bit closer I would say we should do our c25k training together! :D I am in Davis though.

That's is great!!! Hope you are able to complete the whole program.

Thank you everybody for the support! I'm planning on doing day two later this evening when it gets a little cooler out. :) I'm excited!

KayNicole, such a bummer you're in Davis!!! Having a buddy would be fun. Maybe down the road we'll meet up for a 5k when we're both through with this. ;)

Yay!!! I'm so proud of you!!! You'll be a runner in no time!

A year ago, I couldn't run 1/4 of a mile without stopping to walk. In December, I ran a half marathon!

It's amazing what we can do when we put our minds to it!

An update for those of you who might be wondering! :D I just got back a little bit ago from running W1D3! That's right... I finished week 1! :woohoo: I'm feeling awesome! And I will probably start week two on Monday, since I have plans for the next two days sue to my birthday being Sunday. ;) Thanks for all of the support, guys!!!
