I am so proud of myself. I really did well on this run. Failing my first W5R1 was probably the best thing that's happened to me during this adventure. I'm not afraid to fail anymore. It's happened, and you know what? The world didn't end. I got up, and I kept going. C25K doesn't have to be all or nothing. A small set back isn't the same thing as a complete failure.
Again (I seem to do this a lot) I'm going to use this lesson in my "real" aka not running life. I've always been a perfectionist. Perfection is a great thing, but it's so nerve racking. I'm going to let up on myself. It's okay to be less than perfect.
BTW-During the last 60 seconds of my 2nd 8 minutes, I decided to go for it. I sprinted for that last minute. It was amazing. That makes me think that I'm really ready for my 20 minutes on Sunday.
Happy Running & good luck to everyonel!
