10K

well, here we all are at 9 weeks end and what a feeling of accomplishment. This week has been a great ‘grande finale’ and I hope everyone feels the same sense of accomplishment as I .

today’s 10K was something I totally feared. It has been at least 15 years since I ran that distance with broken bones, injuries, and age all in between. I was able to accomplish this feat and feel great about it. Mile one was very slow (warming up I suppose) and 2 and 3 went by well. 4 was great, feeling strong, but once I hit about 5 1/2 it got tough. Never needed to walk, or even felt like walking, but did struggle with the last 1/2 mile for sure. Lots of positive self talk.
This has been a terrific 9 weeks, the program, the blog, the sense of accountability, and especially the excitement of looking forward to a tough workout daily. THanks to all of you for the encouragement!

I plan to continue working hard and want very much to keep up this type of pace and strength building (mental and physical).
