Another fitness goal…

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working toward running a 5K with the C25K running program . Three walking/running workouts a week gradually progressing in length and intensity to move you from couch potato to running a 5K in 9 weeks.

Well, it’s taken me more like 11 weeks. I had a tough time getting through Week 6 and had to attempt it three times before I was able to get through all three workouts. But I did it!

I only have Week 9 left to go – three more workouts and I’ll be there! Able to run a 5K. (3.1 miles for people who are metric-ly challenged like me)

Never one to rest on my laurels, didn’t I stumble across one hundred pushups yesterday? 0 to 100 pushups in 6 weeks. I’m not going to try this while I’m still doing C25K, so next Monday, the 100 pushups challenge begins. I bet it takes me longer than 6 weeks, but I bet I can still get there. And just so you know, those will be girlie pushups, on the knees.

Care to join me?

  1. new to your blog.
    what a lovely space you have here.
    I’m so happy to have “found” you.
    Such inspiration and comfort found perusing your archives.
    And looking forward to much more to come.

  2. Oh boy, I don’t know that my old back could take even girlie push ups! LOL. Good luck though, we’ll all want to see a photo of that milestone! I never could do pull-ups either, not even for Marine Corps testing in high school…
