Exciting! Or, One Big Reason for the Blog Quiet Over Here
I'm ten weeks into my twelve-week training program, and I'm running a couple of 5Ks to help me prepare for the target run. This run has around 250 runners (yep, I was a late registrant), so it'll be a good 'break-in' for the big race in two weeks.
Ten weeks ago, I could barely run for one minute. When I began training, we were running 1-minute run, 2-minute walk intervals and our 'long run' for the week was 1.25 miles. Now the intervals are 4 minutes running and 1 minute walking (or more when/if you can), and our long run this week was 3.25 miles. My 'short run' next week is 3 miles - so I'll be running a 5K on Thanksgiving Day!
Have I mentioned that I'm excited? Heck, I'm not just excited, I'm proud, too!
