    Good luck with the mile run.

    I hope you got your power back on quickly and that the storm wasn't too bad.

    Thanks CES,,

    wk 4 day 1, survived !! actually went smoothly... 4:30 run /60 sec walk X2 actually made it, only being a bit whinny on the 3rd minute of continuous ruining and then being able to settle into the last 1:30 and push harder to the finish.... so pretty cool 20 minute warm up, 10 minute cool down before I hit the safety key with my hand and stopped the treadmill lol lol ... Yay, for Monday training... 3.2 /3.4 mph on the first run section and was fine. 3.4 /3.5 mph through the second run section...

    Not sure CES, normally our winter goes until June,, but these long warm ups reminds me of an early spring... is starting out as a strange weather pattern .

    Wk 4 day 2 made it, but I almost broke mentally on the second run... first run 6:30 did just fine 45 second walk then a last 3:30 run was mentally overwhelming about half way.. up to a full hour on the treadmill 10 minutes of run training time and the rest is warm up and cool down time.. body feels good,, and relaxed... mental is always the hardest....

    yes it does CES lol.. Am definitely not a runner to understand the conversion quickly when I hear people talk about K's.. Am thankful it is only like 3 miles and not 5.. At my current speed I don't make the full 3 miles in the training time so am looking forward that I will some day as I progress

    wk 1 day 2 1 minute runs 2 minute walks play'd with speed adding more 4.0 mph runs... went well

    5K wk 1 completed is amazing how the body responds to small gradual changes walk pace 3.0 mph's and run pace 4.0 finishing the last 3 run segments at 4.3 mph's... am still doing the 10 minute warm up walks and cool down walks.. using the incline to stretch out the muscles on the back of the legs better.. works our really well.
