I'm so cool

Ok, not really. I'm actualy a pretty big nerd. But, I did finish week 2 of the C25K today and THAT is pretty coool... which makes me cool by association right? Right?

I've attempted the C25K challenge three times now and this is the first time I have ever finished week 2. It's a great feeling of accomplishment. It's also a bit scary since this means I have to move on to week three. Mayeb I should begin developing my mental pep-talk now.

As a side note, I noticed after this morning's workout that my calf muscles are getting a little bit of definition to them! Maybe this isn't exciting to other people but I'm over the moon about it. That litttle bit of definition is proof that my body is feeling the effects of all this new exercise and I'm on the right track.

Also, while driving around lost trying to meet Steve for lunch this week I found a park! I will be checking this place out. Maybe I can try running outside for a change.

I leave you with the songs that helped me out today. The first is Misery Business by Paramore which played as I was streatching and warming up... it got me very much in the right mindset. The second is Eye of the Tiger. I have no idea who it's by just that it's an amazing song and it came on during the last 3 minutes of my workout and helped me finish with a bang. Sorry there are no links... I have faith in your incredible youtube skills until my computer decides to cooperate. :)


  1. I have a song suggestion for you it's Monster by Skillet a very good workout song, also give a try to I will not Bow by Breaking Benjamin, it has a good theme. Good stuff especially the Skillet song

  2. Yay! Congrats on finishing week 2! You are doing awesome! Keep up the good work! I totally agree though, good music is everything to keep you going, I definitely keep lots of upbeat songs on my ipod to get me through my runs, Sugarcult, Fall Out Boy, Britney, All American Rejects, and pop Carrie Underwood (think Cowboy Casanova and Last Name) are all on my running playlist and keep me moving.
