Yesterday was day 9 of our running adventures.
I noticed in the last post I didnt provide much detail about the dynamics of this running program. So, the short of it is I am training for a 5k in April with 2 of my girlfriends, and my husband is our coach. We hit the Austin trails at 5:30am 3 days a week and on our off days we cross train with a fitness exercise of our choice along with foot drills and injury prevention stretching.
So, for the best news...... Our goal for day 9 was to run for 12 minutes and walk 10 with a total fitness time of 35 minutes. Wednesday morning was soooooo cold. 32 degrees. I couldnt feel my fingers and I kept telling my girls my butt was numb. But, perseverance must have been on our side because we ran continuously for 22 minutes. On day 1 we could not run more than 10 minutes. This is quite an improvement! We have set our sights on a half marathon for the fall since we are confident the 5k will be a piece of cake for us in April.
