1 Run 3, Week 9 (CT5K): Not An End, But A Beginning!


Ran my final run of the CT5K program (with Erik) at 2 pm today. It was a humid 86 degrees outside. It was a rather sluggish run as I'm not accustomed to running in the heat, but it was good nonetheless. I'd have preferred to have run my final run of the program with more gusto, but as Erik said after our run, "Any run is a good run." (By this, of course he meant that any time you finish a run, you are building greater fitness & well-being, & are actively working towards your goals.)

Looking ahead to next week: I'm in the process of choosing a new program for the upcoming week. Since I'll be simultaneously running with my friend on 2 out of 3 of my running days, I'm probably going to keep my independent workouts on Tuesday & Thursday to no more than 30 minutes, until my friend & I finish out the CT5K program. This way, I'll gradually work up to being an hour-long runner, even though there'll technically be breaks between the two runs.

I just found an awesome way to continue training:

In exchange for raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, they provide coaches, mentors, and consultations with physical therapists and nutritionists to actually train you to run a half-marathon OR even a marathon, and some of them are in really cool places (like Disney World and Ireland!). I just went for a meeting with the Delaware coordinator today, and I have my sights set on a half-marathon in San Diego next spring!

I'm excited... I found a way to use my newfound love of running to help make a big difference. Woot!
