So... Running without a treadmill is hard. I'm still getting my breath back after doing my last week 3 run, and I'm away from the treadmills at my apartment's exercise center so I took the run through a neighborhood near me that has sidewalks for most of the way. I'm new to running so I didn't know what sorts of things to do to run in cold weather and there's still frost outside. My legs and chest feel pretty good, but my throat hurts and I kind of wish I'd carried a water bottle. Still if the problem was just breathing too hard/ not having water with me, those are fixable issues. and I did get fairly close to doing what google maps says 5k before the podcast ended. I tossed in another little run after it ended, as I could see the house and now that I've stopped I feel pretty good.
getting some running shoes soon, and getting back to the treadmill for Tuesday and the start of week 4, which looks scary. Wish me luck
