You are not too slow..... look, you are improving! It's all about your PR as runners call it ... your Personal Record. As long as you are improving and you are doing it safely, you are doing great! Keep it up!

Slow?? I am much slower than that, and I get a really good work out. 3.2-3.3 with a max incline of 10% right now, and it is the fastest I've been going since I've restarted, and that's for the faster time on intervals. I have a very short stride, and my legs are going as fast as my friend who runs beside me while I walk. But, when I first started back again, I was walking a max of 2.8, with no more than a 5% inclince. I'm doing my first walk in April, it's a nice short one - 2 miles (fundraiser for victims of sexual assault).

Most obstacle course races don't have a course time limit because they are open all day. I did the Rocky Mountain Warrior Dash just after starting chemo, and it took me 1 hour 40 minutes and no one said a thing except congratulations (I would normally walk a 5K in 45-48 minutes). So you are not being overly ambitious, you have a great goal set, so no matter what, go do it and have fun. Finishing is the goal, not how fast.

Last night, I was able to complete 3.1 miles but it took an hour. This is faster than when I started at 2.75 miles within an hour.

What are your thoughts?

Also, I would like to compete in the Mud Run and as you can see by my ticker, I don't have a whole lot of time to get ready, am I being over ambitious?
