I'm new to this group.
I did the C25K program two years ago and ran two 5Ks that summer. Then my hip gave me trouble. Since then I've started & stopped (due to the hip 3x) and started and stopped (once due to pneumonia) and started AGAIN. I feel like I've been stuck on the edge of 5Ks for years.
I just ran a 5K this past Saturday and, while it wasn't a PR, I was just glad to be able to run it.
I plan/hope to run a 10K in June 2011, that gives me 6 weeks to work up to running 6.2 miles. I am able to do 3 miles, but had taken some hip resting time when this past race was threatened, so I'm trying to up my mileage slowly but steadily, and carefully, starting out this week with 2 and 3 mile runs. I only run 3x a week, when I've tried to push more often or faster I've run into trouble.
