Run 5K App

For the life of me, I do not and cannot run. It was something I did not think I could do. Not until the then Couch to 5K and now known as Run 5K program. 

I started this program two (or maybe more) years ago. And I was a complete failure. I just couldn't. I felt like I was going to die. A minute jogging felt like an hour to me. I think I stopped at Week 3 and did not move on. Then I got pregnant so I stopped. 

I resumed the program this year. I seriously need to work out. I would say a prayer before I jogged because I wouldn't go on with it. My mindset was, "I cannot do this."

And then last week, 

I finally finished it. I jogged for 30 minutes straight. What a feat for me! 

I was disappointed with the Run 5K app, there should be a "Congratulations!" when I finished. It's all business, move to the next level 10K. That was just me. I needed the pat on the back. 

Now, I alternate jogging with Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred program. It is not strictly a 30 day thing for me. I don't want to stop jogging as I admit I am enjoying it now so I want to keep on doing it. In my ideal world, I would love to do both but reality is I can only do one workout a day. Time is a luxury for me.  

Seriously, who would have thought I'd say I want to keep on running in the morning? If someone prophesied at the beginning of the year, I would eventually say that, I would think they were nuts.

I had my inspirations. The biggest influence was my sister who said years ago because we have asthma that we cannot run. Well, she proved that wrong and is now joining marathons.

Everything is possible, my friends.

For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
- Philippians 4:13 NLT
If I can do it, so can YOU!
