I too am amazed! The first few times out I was running too fast I think and could barely jog for one minute without gasping. As long as I paced myself I could run the 3 minutes pretty well!
For my Week 5, Day 1 run I went 5.09 km in the 36 minutes! Not bad for a smoker who had never jogged a minute in her life until I started this plan!! LOL. I am actually disappointed when it is not a "running day" in my work out plan!
Looking forward to my first walk/jog on June 12. It is not an "official 5 K" but it is an organized event. I plan to do my first official 5 K "run" in August (after completing the 5K your way running program).

"Our running shoes are really erasers. Every step erases a memory of a past failure. Every mile brings us closer to a clean slate. Each footstrike rubs away a word, a look, or an event that led us to believe that success was beyond our grasp." - John B
