So this morning I finished week 6 of C25k. I was feeling a bit apprehensive about this run, because run 1 on Monday (run 5 minutes, walk 3 minutes, run 8 minutes, walk 3 minutes, run 5 minutes) totally kicked my ass. It was the sort of run where just after starting, I was already checking the clock to see if it was time to stop. However! Today (run 25 minutes) I totally killed it and was in a state of zen the entire time. At the 20-minute mark, I felt good enough to increase my pace. I had gone nearly 4k by the time the cooldown was up, which is greatly encouraging. I still haven't actually signed up for the 5k race in October, but today for the first time I actually believed I could do it.
