Divas Half Marathon 5K Training Day 3

The beginning of March I started jogging again.  I am training for a 5K race that is in June but I'm at the walk/jog stage right now.  I had planned to run 3 days a week but last week I only ran 2 days.  The first day was good especially after not having run for a while. I am following the C25K program since I have done the program before I started on week 5 which is walking for 5 minute warm up, jog for 8, walk for 5, jog for 8 and a 5 minute cool down. My route has an uphill part which is my warm up but when I get to the top I am usually out of breath when I start jogging.  Once I get on the flat part of the path I can find a comfortable pace to jog at.  The other day it was very hard to run.  I had no energy and my legs felt like lead.  Today's run was really good. I had a good pace going and a comfortable stride.  I felt pretty good after the run.

  1. Visiting from the SITS Spring Fling! I'm a runner too training for a half marathon. Good luck with your training! Aren't endorphins after a run the best?!

  2. I started running about a year ago and thought I would just die. But it's funny how your body gets used to it after training. It actually becomes addicting. And that's coming from someone who swore she would NEVER do it! Sounds like you are doing great! Good luck!
