Couch to 5K Check In: Fitness Corner

Hey c25k participants! How is your week going? I'll be doing week 2 day one.

I've been thinking a lot about what we are all capable of. Early last week I did a spin class. Now, I've done spinning classes before and really enjoy them but when I walked into the room for this particular spinning class the instructor took one look at me and came over to chat with me. I think she was trying to talk me out of the class (while trying to act encouraging). "Are you sure about this?" she asked, "Have you tried anything like this before?" she asked. I told her that yes, I was sure and yes I have done many such classes thankyouverymuch.

After the class she thanked me. I was the only person who kept a smile on my face for the entire class. And it was fun. It was fun to prove her wrong and the class itself was fun. I had a great time.

I guess, in a round about way, it goes to show that we are all capable of much more than we (or others, in my case) give us credit for. Don't be scared to put yourself out there!

And if you didn't join in the fun last week, there is still time. Remember, any goal counts. Do you want to run a 5k? Check out the Couch to 5k program. Want to walk? That's cool too! Already a runner? Try working on something new like improving your pace. Anything goes and we'll all do a 5k together on July 20th.

Teaching Ain't For Heroes' Emilie ran a 5K in 33:31 on Saturday, May 4th. She is working on getting her average pace to around 9:30 per mile. Go Emilie!!!

Post your successes here and I will highlight you next week!
