My New Year's resolution was to run in a 5k this year. I've never run in one. I've really never been a runner,but this is a goal I've had in the back of my mind for quite a while.
So when I go for a jog I can make it a decent distance, ate least 2 miles or so, but I have some pacing problems. Last week I tried doing the Couch-to-5k program for a few days. I found that when I stuck just to the plan I ended the run with a lot left in the tank. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing, I think I probably could skip ahead a few weeks into the plan.
For next week I think I will likely try to just get back to jogging the whole time and see how that gos.
I'm penciling in a 5k race in September to be shooting for. What I really want though is to train for an obstacle course race like Spartan Race. The 5k will be a good first step though...
