W5D1 Complete!

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Just finished the first day of Week 5! Feeling pretty good :)

I didn't sleep well last night, so I was a little concerned that I'd be too tired to run the whole time, but once I got out there I didn't feel as tired. The second 5 minute run was the most difficult for sure. Also, I usually push super hard in the last interval but I couldnt keep proper form so I slowed it down a bit. Not what I hoped for, but I still did it so I feel good about that.

Day 2 is up to 8 minutes straight!! I feel totally confident that I can do it! In fact, I'm really starting to look forward to these runs, haha!

    Good work! I finished W5 D1 on Saturday and haven't been able to run yet this week. I have the same feeling - it is beginning to get addictive . . . The feeling of accomplishment after finishing each run is just AMAZING!

    I agree with the "it is all mental part" Tell yourself you can do it and believe it!

    Congrats! You can absolutely tackle this thing! Trust me, I just finished...and I've never run at all before this (not counting those times in gym class when I had to!) emoticon emoticon

    Week 5 is a doozie, from 5 minutes to 8 and then ending with 20 on day 3! When I started the week I was certain that I wouldn't be able to do it, but I surprised myself and I bet you will, too! Good luck, and don't forget your mantra!

    You can absolutely do it! And soon you will find that you'll be running longer than you ever thought possible and 5 minutes will seem like no problem whatsoever.
