I love the fact that runners are starting to realize how healthy it is to run. Just remember to train well, stay focused, listen to your body, and embrace those recovery days! You want to run safe to be able to run in the future!

My 5K training is preparing me for the non-runner's (beginners) marathon training I plan on doing this summer. I want to do a marathon. I don't need a fabulous time, I just want to finish :)

Someday is today!

Since completing my 5 K, I have been adding some uphill training to strengthen my legs for running outdoors. I tried one outdoor run with a friend and it was so much harder than the treadmill! Since doing strength training for the uphills, we tried an outdoor run again and it went fantastically. I did not battle with the 5K! Also, have increased my treadmill run to 6k in 40 min.

Just keep running at least a few times a week. If you take too long of a break then try to go back, you'll kind of be starting from scratch. Whatever you do, jsut keep running. And one dayyou'll see an ad for a 10K/Half Marathon or someone will tell you to sign up with them, and you'll know you can do it because you've been running continuously :)

"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs and the voice in your head that yells "CAN'T!". But don't listen. Just push harder. Then you'll hear the voice whisper "can". That's when you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are."

I just completed my 1st 5k also. I am signing up for more, and trying to improve my time. My next one is in Jan. Eventually, I think I will sign up for a 10k. Maybe a marathon or a half marathon in a few years. emoticon

I am continuing this program but running at a faster pace.
