Week 9 – Step by step




Although this post is a belated one, week 9 was a week of taking steps. In my DMP of last year I wrote a goal concerning running, running 5 kilometers in 30 minutes before a certain date. I wasn’t a runner at all, but I wanted to do something more physical concerning my health. So I thought it was a good idea to start running. For some reason I didn’t start with running at all during last years course. It wasn’t a coincidence that during this past summer I came across a certain running program which sounded very well and they started in September, almost at the same time of this years MKMMA program. This running program was a program for absolute beginners, building up from 20 minutes walking to 30 minutes running in 12 weeks. As being an absolute beginner, this was a “fit”, so I decided to join this program. And off I went with this running program. During those weeks I noticed that I shouldn’t look ahead to the weeks to come too much, but literally just start one training, and when completed take the next one, etc. And I have to say, I have been very loyal to the program, never skipped a training, also when the weather wasn’t that good, and even rescheduled my work schedule, so that I was able to do all the 3 trainings in the week. Last week on the second training in the week we have completed the 30 minutes run. It was great fun to do and for me a great accomplishment. I am very proud of myself I completed it. The next goal running 5 kilometers within 30 minutes is very nearby now. All it takes is taking step by step and follow through. With this in mind I continue this course…


Have a great day,

  1. Wow! Very good of you! And a nice picture!
    It reminds me to do my best more. I do walk with the buggy and baby 3x a week, and integrate some running in it. Sometimes 3 min, 5, 15, but do not brake through more than that. Strange, because I once was a running coach. This post gives me more motivation to persist! Thanks!
    And you, go on running further!
