Today was the official day. Today was the day I set out to jog 5km. After months and months of working through the Couch to 5km program I was going to give it a shot. I’d napped half the day and bringing drinking water in an attempt to knock a lingering headache on the head. It had been a big week and I felt exhausted. But the deadline was here. It was go time. So go, I did.

I did the first 2.5km in under 20 minutes. I felt good, I felt crazy! Haha. It took a full 35 minutes to complete the second 2.5km. So there was a lot of shuffling and towards the end I focused on jogging more of every five minutes than not. Bit by bit I chipped it away until here I was, in my lounge have met my goal. Sure, I’d envisioned it being more elegant. Faster. And more of a run.

But you know what? They’re all expectations and no one was ever made happy by them. Here I am, having achieved my goal. Or at least the first of them. Tomorrow I’m joining Jetts {my sister already goes there} and we’re going to work together to deliver a sleeker, fitter version of myself to 2013 come hell or high water.

My next goal is to do the 5km in under 40 minutes {two 20 minute halves} by the end of April.

Now, what’s for dinner?
