Journey to a 5K, June 15, 2010

Week 1
Day 7

Wow! I've done this for a week! I've done the walk/run thing four days now. I started out barely able to do 1.5 miles that first day. I stopped numerous times, some of those stops being a little long. And now, just three times later, I just did 2.76 miles.

It hurt like heck. I won't lie. I'm by no means a runner. A few times I thought I was going to cry. It was hard. I laughed and told Lori I felt like I was about to have a "Biggest Loser" moment where someone is exercising really hard and feels like they can't go on... and they start to cry. Lori responded that she'd go all "Jillian" on me. LOL I didn't cry, but I grumbled and complained a good bit.

I'm hoping to take care of some of the pain by getting some good shoes. I am hoping to head to Phidippedes a little later today and have them help me get the right shoes. I've heard that can make a world of difference. And since I don't like pain, I think I'll try some different shoes.

Activity Summary: 2.76 miles, 1hr 2min, 1.7 miles run/walk, rest of distance walking with squats & jumping jacks every 5th house - 50 of each
