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.
