Week 6 Day 1...Or More Importantly 3.1 miles!!!

Today I was supposed to start week 6. Here's the schedule:

Day 1:
5 min. warm up walk
Jog for 5 min.
Walk for 3 min.
Jog for 8 min.
Walk for 3 min.
Jog for 5 min.
5 min. cool down walk

Day 2:
5 min. warm up walk
Jog for 10 min.
Walk for 3 min.
Jog for 10 min.
5 min. cool down walk

Day 3:
5 min. warm up walk
Jog for 25 min.
5 min. cool down walk

Well I got an invite to go running with a few friends of mine (who have been running longer and farther than me). I decided to go even though I had major butterflies in my stomach about it. I was sooo nervous and scared that I wasn't going to be able to keep up even though they assured me they were going to go at a slow pace. We ran at 9PM in one of the girl's neighborhood. It was flat which I love! Not only did I run the ENTIRE 3.1 miles...I felt GREAT!!! And we ran it in a little over 35 minutes! I am sooo proud of myself! This is the longest and farthest I have ever run without stopping to walk! Even though I ran the 5K Azalea Trail Run I had to stop a few times to walk. I am excited that I did this! I know I am going to be ready for my next 5K race, The Fiesta of Five Flags Race in Pensacola on May 1st!

So anyway, I didn't do day 1 technically...I ran farther than that! But hey the whole point is getting off the couch and running!!!
