Healthier for myself,
Healthier for my family and
Healthier for my future children.
I did a really good job of watching my portion sizes and snacking during the first part of the year, which gave me decent results. This summer I decided to take it to the next level by starting to exercise. In June I joined a "Couch to 5K" program at my local wellness center. This is an interval training program where at the beginning of the program you walk longer than you run and by the end you are running longer than you walk. The goal of the class was to complete a 5K at the end of August that supported our local recreational lake, the Beeds Lake Restoration Run. Our first class in June had over 30 people in it and yesterday, I'm happy to say that I was one of 6 class members that completed the 5K!
My goal at the beginning of the summer was to not just complete the 5K with the rest of my class members, it was to run the entire 5K - and that is exactly what I did! Now, my pace may have been pretty slow, but it didn't matter to me. I finished my first ever 5K race in 42:31 minutes! Now all I can think of is where I should register to run next and try to increase my running pace so I can beat my time.
Thank you to My Farmer and LP for giving me time to run this summer and time to join the class at the Wellness Center. I was so happy and proud when I saw both of you standing at the finish line cheering me on, along with the hugs I got as soon as I finished.
I wish I had some photos of me at the end of the race, but we had to get back home so we could check on my in-laws new puppies!
What would you rather see, me sweaty after a race, or hour old Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppies - I mean really... Aren't they so cute and adorable?
Look at those cute puppies! Congrats on your 5K, that is awesome!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sara! If you're looking for a dog in six to eight weeks I have five options for you...Delete
I'm amazed she had 5! I didn't think she looked near that big. Congrats! on a healthy litter of pups... I'm going to assume the delivery went smoothly! Big congrats!!! on your 5K! I'm proud of you!!!ReplyDelete
Yes, the delivery went well. She had four puppies by 8am and then puppy #5 (the biggest one) came in the noon hour. Thanks!Delete
Good for you! How awesome! I was just thinking about my summer goals, and I haven't really accomplished a lot of them...ReplyDelete
The puppies are so fuzzy and cute!
Nicole, you still have a couple weeks till summer is officially over to accomplish them! I know you have at least gotten the Farmer's Market goal checked off your list.Delete
What cute pups!ReplyDelete
HUGE congrats on keeping your goal and also on finishing a 5K! People say resolutions don't work, but I disagree - almost 10 years ago I made a New Years resolution to stop smoking and start running, and I'm training for my 9th marathon this fall. So they do work, when you set your mind to it!
Wow! That is great. Good luck with your marathon this fall!Delete
