Can't believe I did it. Set off this morning for the last run of week 9 with this odd idea of just seeing if I could run 5k. I walked to the top of the lane where I have run for the 9 weeks started the music and just ran. Past where I would be turning for home in the early weeks, past where I turned after getting to the halfway point in the first 20 minute run and past my 15 minute marker for the last two runs. I just kept going until my run keeper told me I had done 2.5k then turned for home. I must have been grinning like a Cheshire Cat for the next 2.5k because I did it. Not fast but 5 k done in 43 minutes ran the whole way and just so proud. When I started C25K my goal was to run a mile, I remember how amazing it felt when I could do that and then 2 miles was accomplished and now 3. No Limits Anymore!
