I can't believe week 5 is here already. I have followed the training plan and am so excited that I may actually become a runner. Running is something I have always wanted to do and at times had to do (I am a former Marine) but always hated it. My knees would hurt or my ankles would swell. I even developed a stress fracture. Now I can see that I was not training the "right" way in order for my body to adapt.

Following this plan, I am going slower, but I am adapting more quickly so I see that in the long run (no pun intended) I will be better off.

I jog/walked a 5K last Friday so I know the distance is not a problem. I will continue this week following the prescribed program and then continue to add to it gradually once I "graduate". By the way, I can see a change in my body and have dropped some weight. emoticon
