Running 5 miles was not only huge physical hurdle, but also a huge mental hurdle! Who willingly runs 5 miles? Who willing runs for one straight hour? I never thought I would, but I did and I'm so proud of myself! The best part about it was I wasn't completely worn out... I was tired because I got up at 6:15am to run, but I wasn't exhausted. I think I'm actually starting to enjoy running and look forward to it. :)
This week I keep my runs simple and easy at 3.5 miles until Saturday when I'll attempted 5.5 miles! I'm a little ahead of my schedule but Sherry intentionally put me on a casual schedule do to my "lack of time" most weeks. I'm trying very hard to make running my priority and so far it has paid off. Last summer you would have seen me dead on the road had a tried to run 5 miles. This summer I plan to run 10 with no problem at all!!
