Yea, week 1 is done!! For me this is quite an accomplishment since I also traveled during this time which is usually when I fall of the wagon (or run off track - lol).
Today I did the final workout for week 1 and it was a little difficult. My calves and toes were a little sore, but I did push through the workout and completed the workout in 45 min/ and 3.1 miles.
During the week I also was encourged by a friend to join her in a 5K on July 4th. So I signed up and will use that run as part of my program. I am not sure what type of time I will get, but I just want to have this be my first run after the foot surgery. It was 1 year ago July 4th that I made a committment to learn how to run - so to say after 1 year that I do like it and am able to run a 5K is quite a accomplished goal for me. This run is kind of a baseline run to see where I am at after the foot surgery and physical therapy program I've finished in late May. I previously ran 2 other 5K's before the surgery and was at a 32 min 5K. I don't mind starting over - I just says that I can continuously get better as I use this program.
