...and I thought I was going to die.
I was super pumped after our first run on Tuesday.
It was only a 10 minute run, but I was fully convinced that running 5 minutes was an incredibly painful challenge for me, so when the timer rounded the 10 minute mark and I felt like I could have kept going, I couldn't believe it!
Yesterday was a walk day.
Today was the second run day...
this time for 15 minutes.
Still hanging on my excitement from Tuesday I believed the time bump would be a challenge, but not nearly as bad as I had originally anticipated.
I sincerely barely made it... my legs felt like they were going to collapse beneath me! If my hubbers hadn't been running with me for encouragement and accountability, I probably would have quit early.
Pro: I made it. I ran the 15 minutes, even if it was awful.
Con: The misery of it has left me considering whether or not running this 5k in less than a month is actually doable for me or if I'm pushing myself too hard, too fast.
So readers, are any of you avid runners?
Do you have any encouragement?
Tomorrow is a walk day,
Sunday... a 2 mile run.
