I'm slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter, but I run.

It doesn't have to be pretty, it just has to get done.
Something that is helping me complete my runs is that I don't have to time each run (because I'm using an Ipod Touch program) so I have no idea who long I'm running. Now that I looked at the program and know I'll be running 8 minutes during one of the runs on my next session, I'm looking forward to reaching another goal. I know I can do this.

Wow, did I disappoint myself today. I'm on W5D2 and I couldn't complete the 5 minute run. I did so well on my last run that I expected this to be a breeze. Was it the rain? The stitch in my side? The fact that I didn't give my body enough time to recover from the last run? The fact that I'm NOT 20 years old any more? My shins are kinda sore. I came home and soaked in epsom salts. What a sissy.
I can see I may need to repeat each of the weeks until I'm done. But if that's what it takes, I'm going to do it. I WILL run a 5k.

I've been on week 9 for what seems like forever and now I'm just trying to decide when I'm done. Is it when I can run 30 min straight- which I can do. Or when I can run a 5k in 30 min- which I don't think I'll be able to do for a while yet?
