We all can do much more than what we are giving ourselves credit for. Good luck for your run!

The bad news is that while I thought I was good at directions I found out today that while running I am pretty poor at them. I went running with a plan to match my longest run ever and go 4 miles. My wife and I are running a 5k in a couple weeks and she has been so nervous about it. I was going to show her that she is able to run 4 miles and that a 5k (3.1 miles) should not be a big deal so don't worry.

So I take a wrong turn about 2 miles in and realized about a half mile later so I thought I would just make and adjustment to my route (you know call on my inner Tom Tom) Next thing I know I am finishing up and can't believe how bad I am slowing down at the end and feeling the burn.

Finally take the time to look at my tracker and realize that I had actually run 5.01 miles.

So I guess the bad news isn't that bad - I have a poor sense of direction.

The good news, on the other hand, is that both my wife and I were able to run a full 5 miles today without stopping or falling over dead. Should mean a 5k is very doable even if I push myself to get a decent time!!!!!
