Runners and walkers! Log your miles here and let's encourage each other!
I started a 5K training program 10 weeks ago (lots of walking intervals at first and slowly increased to running only) and have signed up for my first 'official' race on June 18. I am running 3 days per week.

Today's run: 3.1 mi in 34:30

Got out early (6:00 am) before the heat and humidity got too bad :)

Please post your goals and plan and log your miles here!

Move the fat
I walked one mile on the treadmill today at a lower incline so I could do a mile and burn more calories without dying on my first week. We'll see if I can maintain this and do more.

great work LuckyS!
That is an EXCELLENT start!!! I started really slow and easy so I wouldn't burnout and could be consistent with 3 run/walks per week. In the past I would overdo it at the beginning and then give up. This time has been different because I eased into it and focused on consistency and slow improvement.

Wednesday's run
Did 3.1 mile in 31:30 this morning.

Thinking of doing an 'official' 5K this Saturday... would be a last minute registration but maybe that would be good... less anxious anticipation?
