Hello everyone! I'm back again. I'm about a month shy of my 1-year runniversary today. I've kind of fallen into a rut where I haven't been challenging myself enough lately. So I decided that has to end. This girl is starting speed work! I downloaded the 5k to 10k bridge and keyed up the first run today. According to the program, it should have been a 20-minute steady run with no speed work, but I decided to try some fast running anyway. I just wanted to find a faster/longer stride that felt natural and see how long I could keep it up. I only managed about 4 minutes. Then I dragged the rest of the 16 minutes. I was discouraged at first, but then I remembered 1 year ago how wrecked I felt after 1 minute of jogging. I made it this far and I can make the next level too. I got this! Next stop faster 5k and acceptable 10k!
