Well I almost didn't go out today. My legs were stiff, the weather was iffy. That was rain I felt when I stepped outside. It was really humid. I could really talk myself out of walking/jogging today. My legs hurt. I did not want to injure myself. I had a lot of perfectly good reasons why I should not go out and walk/jog. But I went out anyhow. I again traveled clockwise so that the first run was downhill. First run went OK. Now I walked. Second run went OK. Third run included an uphill portion. Not so good. I was getting twinges in my right knee. OK I would only run down hill. Forget the 3 min/2min stuff. I would walk on anything that wasn't down hill. I would run downhill. It took me 46 minutes and 12 seconds but I completed the 5K. I also discovered that the uphill portion of the route was far longer than the downhill portion of the route. I did not count this as Week 3 day 2. I will try again on Friday and see if I can complete Week 3 day 2. The one thing I am sure of is I AM NOT QUITTING!
