I love when I beat my own record!

I am so excited! Last week I was able to complete my first full 5K without breaking to walk at all and I just felt absolutely on cloud 9! My time was 34:45 and I knew that was just the beginning. It was my personal record and my motivation to keep pushing forward with a number to beat.

Yesterday I ran another full 5K and cut a whole minute and twenty seconds from the time from the week before. Can you imagine how happy I was? It felt so good to get through it and look at the number 33:25 on the treadmill. YAY!

Now get this, today I went for another run because I missed my boxing class and despite being exhausted from what felt like a really loooooong week I was determined to at least match Thursday's time. I pushed through fatigue (and a wee bit of boredom) and just kept running despite wanting to slow down ( okay lets be honest, I wanted to stop altogether). I ran and ran and then ran some more and by the time I reached the five kilometre mark I was absolutely elated. My time:

32:23

I feel so great! I ran 14 km this week on top of my Pump and spinning classes and I just feel like I kicked some major ass this week!

Hope everyone is having an ass kicking week too! Happy Friday!
