Wow! I can't believe I have made it to week 5! I am still running on my treadmill testing my new shoes. My shins were a little sore from my run Monday but I think it was past soreness because it didn't seem any worse after running. Today while running I felt a little bit in my shins but nothing unbearable at all. Hopefully these shoes are better.
So the plan for my run today was to walk for 5 minutes to warm up, then I ran for 5 minutes, walked for 3 minutes, ran for 5 minutes, walked for 3 minutes, ran for 5 minutes, and then walked 5 minutes for cool down. It went sooo well! The last 5 minute run was a little challenging because I was getting tired but I did it and did not slow down! I absolutely cannot believe I can run 5 minutes at a time now!!! I am really proud of myself!
Day 2 changes this week: warm up walk for 5 min, run for 8 minutes, walk for 5 min, run for 8 min, cool down walk for 5 minutes.
And Day 3 is what I am really scared about: warm up walk for 5 minutes, RUN for 20 min, cool down walk for 5 minutes!!! Yikes! I hope I can do this one!
