yay for me!


This morning marked the last day of a 9 week running program I have been doing called, Couch to 5k. I'm pretty proud I got through to the end since I don't have a good track record when it comes to exercise, although not really the end as I plan to continue running now that I can (kind-of, I still need lots of practice!). 

It took me about 11 weeks to do as I repeated a couple when I felt I needed improving before moving on. Still, I am pretty happy to have completed this challenge and to end on a high note check out the rainbow that was in the sky when I finished this morning. No kidding! Pretty awesome huh!!? I took these photos off our balcony once I got home and really they do little justice to the size and colour of this beauty!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

That's awesome! Hurrah for you & your running!

In high school I played field hockey & was very active... but then in college & after I have not really been active at ALL. I've gotten to the point where I exercise every night, but I really want to start running. I think I'm just putting it off because when I go for the first time & see how quickly I get totally winded it will be very depressing, hahaha.

Yay. Well done. I am running in my half hour lunch break at work at the moment. I was becoming so jaded I couldn't run in the evenings because it's too dark by the time I get home and I already get up at 5am, so didn't think I could swing much more before work.
Running middle of the day has been great though. It's not as hard a run because there are no hills at work and there are at home but it's better than nothing.
