i ran the equivalent of a 5k.
3.16 miles actually. i did it in 32 minutes.
i'm a cheater though, kind of, because i don't cross against lights and i always have to stop and say hi real quick to kevin the jiffy lube guy and i let bixby use the bathroom once.
so not 3.16 miles in one go. not 32 minutes all at once.
but still - this is huge for me. this is the most i've been able to run... ever? and with a 10:07 pace, i'm pretty proud of myself.
here's the running plan i've been using, cobbled together by yours truly from various running websites and knowledge about what my body can and cannot do. i find i can handle minutes better than mileage, with little bitty 2-3 minute increases each time. and i like to go fast, and i like to take breaks, which is what the interval runs are for.
