Moving Faster

Yesterday I completed week 5 of my couch-5k running plan...which means I had a 20 minute uninterrupted run. This probably doesn't sound like much to the marathon runners...but, considering I have likely not run a cumulative 20 minutes in the last 15 years, this is a satisfying accomplishment for me.

My right knee is a bit stiff, since I crammed the entire week's training into 3 consecutive days. A sports related injury!....rare in my family.

'Possible 5k next month'.... There are some words I thought I would never string together.

    I've just started adding some running into my walk and I'm a little sore today. Good luck on your 5K.
