There are two ways to work the program - either timed or distance. I decided on the timed since that was much easier to do on the phone app. So with only a week to go before completion, I am up to just about two miles. Don't get me wrong, I am beyond proud of what I have accomplished. A little over a month ago I was struggling to go even half a mile. My first 5K is a month from tomorrow and in that time, I have to increase my distance by a little over a mile. I feel determined, but a little overwhelmed at the same time.
I am sore today, but need to (and will) get back out there again tomorrow. Although, I am more determined than ever, there is that little voice asking me if I can really do this. Can I really run three plus miles without stopping? Am I setting myself up for disappointment and embarrassment? I have friends coming to run with and support me. Not to mention a couple that is driving all the way from Plano to take photos so that I will be able to to preserve the memory. I don't want to disappoint anyone - most of all myself. I have worked hard for this!
Stay tuned...I will do my best to post a couple of updates on my progress over the next month. And please, if you have suggestions or words of wisdom, feel free to leave them as a comment. I would love to hear from you! Have a great weekend!
