Couch Potato to 5 K Turkey Trot DAY!!

I did it!  While I thought the three hills would be the death of me, and I did walk at some point on each of them I was able to finish the run in 26:55!  The run was not a 5K, rather 2.5 miles.  Cob said the hills make it equivalent with a 5K.  He finished in 22:00, Mary in 25:19 and Abi 25:17.  Happy Belated Thanksgiving to anyone reading this :)

Couch Potato to 5 K day 3 of week 5

I was intending to blog every day I ran and that just has not been the case.  I am still running.  I did miss several days here and there but overall feel good about being ready to finish Thursdays race.  Notice I said finish :) At this point that is my goal.  We shall see if I train for another if my goals increase in loftiness ;)  Ran 26 minutes this morning with lots of hills in the run.  My knees are feeling it a bit more than at the outset but not enough to stop.

Couch Potato to 5 K day 18

Today is Tuesday
I was supposed to:  Nov 8  20 min jog 5 min walk

Although I haven't posted at all in a week I have not fallen off the jogging wagon.  I am a little behind with life so haven't had time to post.  I am also just a tad behind with the program.  I jogged 18 tonight and walked 5.  Not much to post otherwise.   - Other than it was raining and 42 degrees for tonight's jaunt :)

Couch Potato to 5 K day 10 and 11

Monday and Tuesday
Oct 31 Relax!
Nov 1 16 min jog 5 min walk

It was really cold this morning but I knew I wouldn't have time to run tonight. I tried to work in some hills (which is not hard around here ) into my run this AM since there are a lot of hills in the Turkey Trot.  This morning I tried to picture how it would look, me thinking about all the food prep for the day and taking the time to run in the morning.  Nothing that can't come together with some planning :).  So as my thoughts were wondering my run raced by :) and before I knew it I was stretching those ever too tight hamstrings.
