Well, depending on your location (inside or outdoors) , jogging 5K could be interesting. I jogged 5K on the treadmill today and it was dull. I tried to engage myself by looking at my form in the mirror. It worked as I set out to jog 2K. However, I kept going after 2K with a promise to stop at 2.5K and that quickly changed to 3K. I realized at the 3K mark that I was more bored than tired. So, I challenged myself to jog for 4K , or jog until I'm tired. Soon after I jogged 4K I was about to give up when I started competing with another person who was running on a treadmill about 5 feet from me. Soon after that I was near the 4.5K mark and it was too late to stop. So I completed my 5K jog, and boy oh boy, it feels so good. What an accomplishment! I am so happy that I did not quit.
