I am doing the Couch to 5 K again and so for month of May since my first 5K May 6, I have continued to run 3 days a week. I have only had a 4 day break once during May at the end of the following week after my 5 k race. This was due to a mussel that was really hurting at the top of leg but with massage it worked it out and I was off again to my training. What I have tried to do with my C25K training this time is to increase my pace so I am noticing that I am covering more distance in a shorter amount of time. I am feeling great.

I know that The 8 k is on saturday and I am thinking that I can do it but I will walk/run it. I know I could wait for the end of June for the 10 K but I would hate for a race to pace me by and not take part. YOU know I will feel like I am copping out somehow by not going and attempting to walk/run it. The 8 K Sun Run is a road race that is all on the flat, accept for one hill that when walking it takes about 10 to 15 mins. last Year I walked it the race and it was the first race I had ever done in my life and I was so proud . I really wanted to run the whole thing this year . It is a goal mine but Saturday is fast approaching.

Did my mile yesterday and am thinking of running right now while it is still cool! It is so hot out! Have not done any sculpting yet this week, but I did ride my bike to and from work yesterday, for a total of just over 3.5 miles

Running 3 days a week (2 down, 1 to go) with long run on Saturday.

I signed up for the Half in our city in Dec. Yikes! and Yea! I'm taking a slow increase plan with 3 days of running and 3 days of cross training plus ST. So far so good!

But boy, does the heat and humidity make my legs feel like lead....mumph! I'm just thrilled that I'm out there running though, and today I could tell my stride has lengthened a smidge and my running form is stronger. Thankful for the little improvements. :)

My goal this week (now that I am more or less over that killer cold - yay!) is to run three days. I'm going to do start 6 week plan, similar to C25K, but a bit more challenging since I can already run 10-15 mins. Day 1 is tomorrow!

I just joined Runner's World Summer Streal Challenge, to run one mile a day from today until July 4th. My goal is to run one mile per day this week, as well as 2 days of pilates/sculpting.
I did my one mile today, so I am on track already lol

Please use this thread to let everyone know your goals for the week, to keep yourself accountable. The goals can certainly be running related, but you can use the thread for other goals you are currently doing as well.

Simply write down what you have for a goal for the week (for example: complete week three of C25k), and then as the week progresses, come back and update with the results as you complete steps toward your goal.

Plus, our team is on our way to running to the moon! Please help us get there, by adding that team goal to your own goals list. You can find it from the main team page (near the bottom).

GO ROOKIES GO!!!!
