Today I ran my final W9R3. My "runs"....actually steady jogs (Laura says it's about the journey, right?) were all different. The last two weeks started on my treadmill in my basement, then 3 runs outdoors in southern Florida (first time outdoors), a different treadmill in central Florida and wrapped it up back home indoors (it's pretty frigid outdoors here).
I learned that once breathing and stamina were mastered, for me, it's pretty much a head game....keeping focused. I read the many posts here that encouraged, offered insights and creative solutions, and shared the celebrations and set backs.
Now, I'm ready for my graduation badge...and already planning the next goal. While I'm no where near 5K in 30 minutes, I'm prepared to run a 5K in another couple of weeks with my daughter in Boston.
Now, as I stare down my 60th birthday in May, I plan to "master" the 5k! Wish me luck and know that I'm encouraging you all in your individual quests.
You can do it!
