Fuckin Amazing

I keep being amazed by the Couch to 5K program. Tonight I ran twenty five minutes straight. It was at least two miles. Unbelievable for a guy who could barely run 25 feet about six weeks ago.

The run was pretty good. I finally added music to my running. It was helpful. I was halfway through the run and needed some motivation and some song that went something like "running running running.. keep going" starts playing. I only had my son's iPod so I was stuck with his stuff. It was amazing good for running.

Towards the end with the last two laps I needed some more motivation so I pictured my friends jumping up and cheering. Katitude is not someone you would consider jumpy and bouncy but it's my imagination!!! She was cheering me on along with Carmen and Josie. Carmen obviously is very bouncy!!

So I finished up my final two laps. Started my cooldown walk and.. my motivational song from last week started playing.. "Im riding solo solol solo sololoooo". Nice touch. I finish my stretches and the grand finale hit "Eye of the Tiger". Fuck YA! I have the Eye of the Tiger! I am doing it.

Everything I've read seems to state that six weeks is the breakthrough week when you seem to start to find running is no longer torture. I know you asked me that before but it seems to me that six weeks is it. It becomes more routine now. Great work! Keep it up!
