Still waiting for that runner's high...

I haven't written about my running since February 7 so I figured I'd give a little update. I finished Week 6 of my nine-week running program today. When I wrote just a little over two weeks ago, in the middle of Week 4, I was only running 5 minutes at the most - today I ran 25 minutes! It was tough but I did it. Last week I did 20 minutes for the first time and it actually felt good. This is from the girl who would do anything to get out of running in gym class... I don't thing I have ever run 25 minutes straight before! (Actually it was 26 minutes, I wanted to make it back to my starting point.) I think I will actually be OK with the 5K that I am signed up for on March 30. Pretty cool! I have three weeks left of the program and from now on it is all longer runs, 25, 28, and 30 minutes. As I said in my title, I don't feel that runner's high yet - according to my runner friend it is a wonderful feeling of positivity and joy after a run... Still waiting for that!

Not the most exciting blog post but it will have to do for today! It is late and I really want to watch a little bit of the Oscars before going to bed...

Bravo! That is a real achievement. You must be building so much endurance (and muscles, and burning calories) You'll have no trouble at all completing a 5k.

That is fantastic!! You will be cruising through that 5k!

Anne:

Bravo indeed! Don't forget to let us know how great you make out in the 5k when the time comes.

Thanks for your kind words! I will definitely let you know how the 5K goes. I just hope it won't be raining that day!
