Tomorrow I'm doing week 4 run 3. On run 2 something clicked with the 5 mins runs and I didn't want to stop!
This morning I thought I would just "freestyle" walk/run as I feel like and see how far 5k is on my route. The most I usually do is 1 mile there and 1 miles back. So 2 miles. 5 k is about 3.1 miles according to online converters!
Well well I did about 4 mins warm up walk (after warm up exercises at home) and then ran for I'd guess 3-4 mins before walking a few mins then just ran (slow jog lol) the rest of the way and most of the way back! I stopped in total for about 3 three minute walks (not including the warm up and cool down walks) but was still AMAZING!
I felt like a true runner for the first time! Although I maybe will feel it later today but I totally blame my legs. When I headed out I figured I would just run if they wanted to and stop if they wanted to but they were loving it and even though my head said a few times "I should walk now for a bit" my legs were like "no we want to do more"... Until near the end and when I stopped to walk the last few minutes home my legs felt like jelly! Lol
But I am feeling really good and not so scared of week 5 as I was before!
