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

Excellent endurance! And next, carry a GPS with you (LOL!).

You’ll get where you want to go as long as you are taking more steps in the right direction than the wrong one.

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!!!!!
