Personal Achivement

For the past 9 weeks I have been Following a training program that will help me to stop being a potato couch and be able to run...until 5K.

The name of this training program is called Couch to 5K (C25K). Basically it is a workout 3 times a week up to 9 weeks from 20 to 40 minutes long.

It us more of building up stamina.  So for a person like me who hates walking up steps and it totally breathless exerting any energy at all I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could really make it to 5K.

I highly doubted it....but....on September 15, 2011 I finally ran 5K! It was the last week of the training.  I have run another 5K and tonight I plan to run another 5K.  Man! I can't believe I'm talking 5K!

It hasn't been easy but consistency and perseverance seriously pay.  And I have also seen a huge difference it bring on my energy during the day at work.  I don't feel so exhausted as I used to.  I'm super patient with my students now...it does help it does.

Oh and it's fun.  The runner's high is addictive!

The rout I ran on my very first 5K!

Actually to be exact it was 5.45K! 

I was/am really really happy...
