Week 8, day 1 done today, and I feel great.
The weather is 61 degrees and quite cloudy, but not raining.
Today increased the run time to 28 minutes, with the 5 minute warm up and cool down times.
I chose a point farther down the street (Byers Ridge) as the turnaround, next time I will go even beyond that.
No breathing issues, I am getting better at nose in, mouth out, and belly breathing.
4.9 avg mph
5973 fitbit steps
I notice that this is more than a 5K in total, and an avg of 4.9, and less than 40 minutes all together. Honestly, that is as good as I was expecting to do in the 5k. By the way, that 5K is very soon. I will have one more shot at this run; 2 days of recovery, and then Saturday is race day.
On Wednesday, I would like to try to figure out just how much of it is run, vs walking.
My plan on the 5K is to do it just I like I do this. The first five minutes will be a walking warmup. Then I will kick into jogging, and hopefully I will jog until I cross the finish line. Then I will walk for a bit more as a cool down. What do others think or do?
