This picture was taken after our first 5 minute run that we thought we could never do!
Today I finished up Week 8 of From Couch to 5K and I have to say that I felt good. Good to have run for 28 minutes straight. Good to know that I have run for 8 weeks straight (except one week break of vacation, and one week break of bad weather).
I have no set time I want to master when I run. Instead, my plan is to just try and run the whole thing. I just want to be able to proudly say that I ran a 5K. I am a slow runner. I know that! As of now, I am going just 2 miles in 28 minutes. It's by no means fast, but I keep reminding myself that I just started running and to not worry about a time.
So now I need help from you, my blog readers. What are your tips for running a 5K? What should I wear (it's suppose to be around 32 degrees and maybe snow that day)? What should I eat before the race? Any other helpful tips?
