Recompleted Week 1 (C25k Week 11)

This past week I was surprised to see that my body was able to push through to complete two more days of Week #1 Couch to 5k program!


Each instance my distance was less and less. The first run was about 1.5 miles, the next at 1.3 and the final one was only a mile. I know before that last run of that week I felt thirsty going into the run, which meant that I was already dehydrated.

But I did it! It is encouraging to know that each step is a testimony to my neighbors who remember how I couldn’t walk that first week.

This progress means that I can begin week 2 in the program, which is something I’ve never attempted before. I was supposed to start the day of the accident. Week 2 is characterized by jogging 1.5 and walking 2 mins. I’m interested to see how I’ll be able to do this.

Also, the end of the summer is nearing, so I’m wondering how my body will take to running in the colder weather. Wondering if I should start investing in capris and long sleeved shirts?

Finally, we can go ahead and sign up for the Run for Their Lives Race on Oct.12th! So excited!

  • Rescued Penguins For My Birthday I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that [...]
  • Ranted about the “Me Before You... Guys, why do we (especially the Christian conservatives) freak out about EVERY new book (but more so when its made into a movie) that comes out with an agenda that doesn’t quite match God’s standards?

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
