Go go go

My running buddy asked me what my goal was, and I replied "to run a 5k". He said, "you can already run a 5k, I guarantee it." I replied that I thought he was full of crap, and he offered to pace me the next run we did, and see how far we got. Lo and behold, on Sunday, we ran 4 miles (6.4k) and I only had to walk a few minutes in between! It took us about an hour. We averaged 17:30/mile, so certainly a slow run. But, nonetheless, it was running.

I revised my goal to, "a 5K in under 40 minutes". I'm still a novice and I still need to finish the program.

Leading up to that, I did two runs with 4-minute intervals, and a run with 6 minute intervals. I actually did the 6-minute segment on Friday evening, and I had run on Thursday as well. I wasn't sure if I was overdoing it, but with my arm messed up, my entertainment options are limited :-/ I can't knit, crochet, play video games (for very long) or cook much. (I'm doing keto as well, which has done a lot to teach me that I'm an emotional eater, and a boredom eater.)

So, I went running two days in a row. It didn't seem to give me an issue, but I got home today and really, really wanted to go. However, I don't want to fall into the trap of doing too much too fast.
