    Great program finished my 2nd 5k

    Ok, so I did five 5k in five weeks. One of them was a trail run, which was very challenging. I didn't worry about time just enjoyed it but I did it in under an hour. My speed has not gotten much faster than when I ran my 2nd 5k. So am going take a break from running races this next month or so and work on improving my strength and speed. My legs seem to tire more than I do. Any suggestions s?
  2. I fnished my second 5k today. I did the first one two weeks ago. I ran it about a minute faster than the first one. This one else I finished in 34:40. I was shocked that I won first in my age group-Masters (fifty and over). There ended up being eleven of us in that age group. Really stoked and want to just keep it improving my time and start working on the 10k program.

    Ran my first 5k

    Well, I did it! I ran my first 5k yesterday. I was nervous just because it was my first time I am race situation. My time was 35.40. I was hoping for a little faster but I will takethat. I am already getting good ready to run another in a couple of weeks. I don't know that I would have accomplished this without this app.

    Treadmill

    I tend to run on a treadmill in the end of the summer because of the heat and i like itbecause it helps me maintain my pace and i can even speed up a little to help me sp eed up my pace. Hope that makes sense.

    Treadmill Speed

    I have been using the treadmill, because this time of year it is so hot in Texas I have been running at 5.5 to 6 and i walk at 4.2 to 5. I have had the incline at .5 or 1. I hope to get outside in the next couple of weeks. I just started week 6 and I know it will be harder for me when ever I actually get outside. The treadmill does help me keep a steady pace though

    Week 4 day1

    OK just finished W5D2. It seemed a little intimidating when I first looked at it, but it actually seemed a little easier than the week 4 runs. We will see what happens on day 3. Feeling pretty good about myself now though.
