Just complete week 9's last run--and apparently also completed the program--Yee-Haw! What a great program, I managed to complete it in exactly 9 weeks and progressed as expected (I think). This morning I signed up for my first official 5k run: The 2015 Shamrock 'n Roll 5k, taking place in my home town on March 15, 2015. I guess between now and then I will continue to run for 30 minutes trying to increase my speed completing the 5k faster. During this last week it took me about 33 minutes to accomplish 5K. I'm just a beginner so I'll be happy if I can shave off 3 minutes allowing me to complete a 5k in 30 mins.
I'm glad to take any advice as to the best way to spend the next week getting ready for my official 5K!
