5k Training — W6D1

Weeks 6 & 7 then week 8 it’s show time! This morning I smashed the Week 6 12:00 x 3 run only because I extended the break in between to 2:00 from 1:00. I still ran 36 minutes if you don’t count the walking and the warm up and cool down. Remember a few weeks […]

5k Training — W5D3

Today’s theme of the day was snails. I saw a million of them (OK only 3) as I did my laps. Kinda funny when I’m trying to go fast that I see something so slow on my path. This morning I also started to realize how many familiar faces are out this early running and […]

5k Training — W5D1

This morning started my 5th week of running. It’s amazing just how far I’ve come in my running in just a short period of time. I recorded my 14th run today. That means 14 runs ago I couldn’t keep a steady pace for a minute without getting winded. Now I can put feet to pavement […]

5k Training — W4D3

Fourth week done! So proud of myself. I was supposed to go running this morning with a group but ended up sleeping like crap last night so I backed out last minute. Then it rained. No it rained. It poured. Thunder and lightening filled the sky and the whole world stopped for a little while. […]

5k Training — W4D2

My little running buddy this morning skateboarded a little over 2 miles while I ran 2.5. 6:00/2:00 intervals were tough but doable this morning. Much cooler today and I didn’t start sweating until I got back to the house.

6:00/2:00 intervals are no joke! I got through them tough! I’m so excited! Saw a friend on my run. I used to hate doing laps but my current route makes it easy for me to estimate when I’ll run and walk. I like that better than the unknown but I’m sure I’ll have to get […]

5k Training — W3D3

Training this morning was a little slow but I got through it. 4:00/1:00 intervals are getting easier. I think I’ll give it one more time around before I move up just to be sure. Also I need to get my cross training more steady. That will help make my runs easier.

1.8 mile bike ride

Short little one. The whole family went so that was why it was so short. My daughter fell off a little jump and down a small hill and almost landed on a dead snake so that pretty much cut it short.

5k Training — W3D2

4:00/1:00 intervals completed in respectable time. When I tried this last time I failed miserably. This time was a different story. I think the earlier I run the better I do! Tomorrow gonna hit the road by 7:00am. Two more of these before I feel comfortable moving to the next interval.
