Doing the C25K program and up to 27 minutes of running - more like a slow jog! - and sometimes it's still hard to push past 15 minutes. Keeping at it, though, is a real win.

It is now dark when I wake and dark when I get home. The drive home however is mostly lit. I did my run around town after work instead today. I managed to get 6.2 miles with 3, 17 minute jogging intervals with a 1 minute walk/rest between. Add in 5 minutes to warm up and 5 minutes to cool down and it ended up right at a 10k distance. :-) Very excited!!

You guys are awesome!

I am working up to a 10k. I'd like to get comfortable at that distance and who knows where I'll go next.

I went 5.9 miles yesterday. 3, 17 minute jog intervals with a 1 minute walk. With warmup and cool down the total was 5.9 miles.

I went almost three miles doing run/walk. I ran a full five minutes, then did all the run/walk drills, and did intervals of run/walk during the two "free runs". I'm actually starting to think I might be able to run my 5K. :D I'm actually starting to feel like a real runner. emoticon

It's great to see other Rookie Runners posting their milage here. Great job everyone!

30 minute run, 2.5 miles . . . on the road . . .
20 minute walking warmup/cooldown too.

1.5 miles. It was a test run, to see how my pace is. Wasn't great, but hoping to improve it in the next month or so.

Two miles! Of course, it took me nearly an hour, but 4 minutes of that hour was running. It sounds pathetic, but that's the longest cumulative running time I've ever done.
