As my long runs grow longer (I’m up to 45 minutes) I can’t help but reflect back on my first run. July 1, 2012. Day 1 of Couch to 5k is a 5 minute warm up walk, 1 minute run + 1.5 minute walk (repeated 6 times) then a 5 minute cool down walk. I remember waiting for those 1.5 minutes walks… they never came soon enough! And now I am comfortable running a 5k and am almost halfway through 5k-10k training. I look forward to run days.
As much as I look forward to run days, this next week is a recovery week. Tomorrow I’ll run 15 minutes and my long run later in the week is a 30 minute run. (Perfect opportunity for a 5k this weekend!)
Here I am with friends last Friday at Belding’s B-Foundation Glow run/walk. The theme is pink, so of course we made pink tutu’s! It was fun, my first night run. Had to dodge a couple dead animals, but the rain stopped just in time for the run! Looking forward to it next year.
