I’m in Week 4 of my Couch to 5K program! It’s amazing how much easier this has gotten along the way. This last time I ran, I ran for a total of 16 minutes! 3 min jog, then walk 90 seconds. 5 min jog, then walk 2.5 min. Then repeat.
I ran 5 minutes in a row without stopping!! I literally jumped for joy and said “Thank you, Lord!” when I finished that! I never, ever thought I’d be able to do this, but I am doing it!! God is good!
I’ll do similar days 4 more times, and then at the end of next week, I’m supposed to run 20 minutes in a row with no walking. Wow. I’m looking forward to getting to that point.
I’ve chosen my race, but haven’t officially signed up yet. It’s on April 11. Just 4 weeks away. Intimidating, but exciting all at the same time!
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength! (Phil 4:13)
