First of all, it's celebration time for completing my 5K training and my 1st 5K ever, my birthday which were both on 05/13/2017, Mother's Day Today, and being able to run 5 miles three times. Except for mother's day, these are all landmark and 1st time accomplishments for me.

So, I made a Tres Leches Cake. This cake has 5 eggs in the batter. The baked cake takes 42 oz of three milks, (thus the name "Tres Leches") poured over it. The milks soak into the cake over night. Then, homemade whipped cream and fruit are added in the morning. The result, an ice cold, dense, moist, and incredibly delicious cake! Protein, fat and carbs heaven!
2nd of all, I updated / re-wrote my bio. It's long winded but I thought it should be made more relevant.
Ok, so where from here?
1) A brutal leg work out that I am behind on.
2) A couple weeks of 3 - 5 mile easy runs so my body can catch up to this activity. I think some people call this consolidating?
3) ? ? ? ? - I don't know, this is where I could use some advice. I am thinking of starting a 10K app training. But, I was thinking maybe to start it on W1R1 and try to do the progressions running instead of jogging. I am still mostly jogging. I can run down hill, but on the level and vertical, it' almost all jogging and when I get tired, which is really quick, I jog the majority of the distance. Rather than continue to mostly jog for 5, 7, 10 miles etc..., I feel I need to work on being a runner, not a runner who jogs everything.
The other thing I though about was to continue the 3 - 5 miles three times a week but to run and walk, run and walk those until I build up more and more running time and distance, adding in some track and hill repeats maybe every other week for speed development.
I am really at a loss as to what to do next. Any advice from accomplished runners is welcome.
