Today I started training for the League's 5K this upcoming April. I have approximately twelve weeks to train for this race. My goal is to run the entire 5K but we'll see how that goes. You have to have a goal in sight! I'm doing this in part to step up my gym routine, but I also like having a goal to work towards.
Tonight was day one and the schedule included 5 minutes of running and 1 minute of walking - 5 times. I ended up running (actually running) almost 2 miles. Not too bad. It's been about an hour since I left the gym and my legs are starting to hurt. I go back to the gym tomorrow for the same and then back Saturday for 6 minutes of running and 1 minute of walking - 5 times. Sunday is 45 minutes of cross training and I should receive week two's schedule. Wish me luck!
