I ran 3.92 miles today without stopping! The goal was 5k (about 3.1 miles). I've been using the Zombie 5k app on my iphone to train. I started in mid-February with running intervals of only 15 seconds! Even in the third week of training, I was only up to running a minute to two minutes without walking. Today I ran for 51 minutes straight! (I am very slow...but I did it!)
This is an especially huge victory for me because I have arthritis in both feet. I've tried to get back into running a couple times in the years since I was diagnosed, but this is the first time I've been able to get through a training plan without any arthritis pain! I am so excited to be able to run again. And with running, I'll be able to keep taking off the pounds, which will help my arthritis too.
Feeling great...and tired...and a wee bit ache-y. Ibuprofen and a good night's sleep tonight.
