Today I conquered the workout I was doing when I had that terrible run on Sunday. I won't lie, I was scared! I even considered giving up for all of 10 seconds, before I realized I'd just have to start over. . . again. Today the weather was cold, about 70F and periodic drizzle. But I went anyway, and was grateful for the rain and drippy trees. They helped cool me off while I was running, and I did great! Just run that workout two more times, and I'll be ready for the full 5k workout.

I think the best thing about this program is that it's taught me how to deal with the unexpected while running. Truthfully, most of the unexpected situations are expected, after a while. A little rain? No need to panic, it'll be okay; I'm wet anyway from the sweat. Stitch in the side? It's not a disaster, just slow down a little bit for a few minutes. I recovered from a stitch today and I felt great that I managed to do that without panicking :-D
