Zombie Apocolypse Training Week 4 Check In

 Alright I said it. I'm not really training to run a 5k. I have no intention of running any races. I'm not really doing it for my health either. Unless by "health" you mean out running a horde of brain crazed zombies so I don't get eaten.  Remember you don't have to outrun the zombie just the other guy.
  This week it still feels like my running intervals a very short and painfully long at the same time. I'm running from 3 to 5 times longer than when I started but that's still  precious few minutes. It is also very humbling that the other day a friend told me her running times and she runs a mile in about 1/3 of the time I do.  
 Ok so maybe I can't outrun the other guy yet, I might have to leg him first.

It was hard to motivate myself out of bed to run this morning. Its raining today, and the soothing sound of the rain coupled with the thought of running in the cold and wet made it hard to want to get out of bed. But I did and after a short while found myself enjoying the run. It was fun thinking that I joined the ranks of crazy runners who I used to look at from my car on rainy days and think "Now that's dedication."
