Hurray! I did it. W5R3 and the 20 min run is now under my belt. I am convinced that this run was all psychology. The first 5 min I though, this is terrible, maybe I should reconsider my progress during the earlier runs. Then during the 2nd 5 min I started to figure out a pace that worked. By the 3rd 5 min I was enjoying the music and during the last 5 min, I was starting to feel this is doable. Definitely doable. I can make it.
I am really looking forward to week 6 now. I have signed up for a 5k on Oct 7 in New York City, so I can not fall behind on my training at this point. While I do not think I will be in perfect 5k shape for the race, at least it keeps my highly motivated to keep going.
All in all, it was a good day today!
