Well, the results are in, and my 5k starting point is 41 minutes. My average speed was about 4.6 mph. I'm pretty happy with this. I told myself going in that I needed to be under 45 minutes, and I am very glad to have blown that mark away. So the next step is to start training. I found a 6 week beginner training program from Women's Health magazine that I'm going to be following, and I've set a very audacious goal: In 6 weeks, I want to finish a 5k in 30 minutes or less (or it's free!... Not really).
All of this leads me to talking about blog positivity week (in a roundabout way). Ashley from After Nine to Five is encouraging everyone this week to focus on the positive aspects of the blogging community. Today I want to talk about accountability. It's not just for church, or weight watchers. I know that by writing my blog, and sharing with all of you, I am going to be held accountable for the things that I say I'm going to do. I feel like I have support, encouragement, and the accountability that I need to meet my life goals.
If you haven't headed over to meet Ashely yet, and see what blog positivity week is all about, please do. I don't think you'll be sorry you took the time. Have a wonderful day!
