7 Sensational Minutes!

Oh Yes I Did!!!! I just jogged 7 minutes without stopping! I completed Week 4 of the Couch 2 5K. I only had to jog 5 minutes this week, but next week it goes up to 8 minutes so I always try to do one of the times somewhere between this weeks time and next weeks so then 8 minutes won't seem so intimidating!! However the 3rd day of next week is 20 minutes straight jogging! ACK!

I'm feeling strong and happy. The scale has been moving, I'm pushing myself in exercising and overall I've probably never felt this content with my workouts and life. I don't know if it the jogging or not, but I feel great!!

I've been eating very well, but I need to be conscious that I don't get into a metabolic rut by eating the same calories all the time. I don't track anything, but I know I am making good choices!

Happy Thursday!!


  1. I'm so proud of you for persisting! Keep up the good work. I bet you'll surprise yourself how well you'll do on the 20 min. jog! Good luck.

  2. Woo hoo congratulations! I'm looking forward to the day I can jog 2 minutes without "dying"! LOL I can barely make it through a 1 minute interval. I'm still on week 1 day 1 of the couch to 5k program.

    Like the commenter above said, you'll probably surprise yourself on the 20 minute jog! It probably won't be bad at all :-)
