This week marked the 10th session of the Walk2Run group, and it was our final meeting. I've progressed from running for two minutes at a time to running 30 minutes, and then some. I can actually carry on a conversation, which is great since I've made some great friends through this group. Kristin and Jen kept me going, and I enjoyed seeing them each week. I'm actually kind of sad it's over!
Tonight was our "graduation" 5K - Run for the Athletes, in Aurora at the beautiful Blackberry Farm. A little bit more humid than I like, but it was a lot of fun. I finished in under 40 minutes...not breaking any land-speed records, but as long as I finish I'm good to go.
I went ahead and signed up for the next session of Walk2Run. I'd love to be able to increase my endurance, and kick up the pace a bit. Plus I'll be training for a 10K in Sycamore at the end of October, so this will keep me moving. After that it'll be the Hot Chocolate 5K....hey, who doesn't want to run for chocolate?!
