It took a little longer than the prescribed 8-9 weeks (12 to be exact), but I did it.
I completed a 5K, yesterday.
It wasn't a full "running" 5K... I started out with 1/4 mile warm-up walk, then ran thru to the 3.0 mile mark, then walked the remaining 0.1 for my cool down.
It was a nice way to finish week 12 of the Couch to 5K Running Program.
The warm-up & cool down won't be included in my time/distance.
I'm going to warm up, reset the counter and run the full 3.1 miles.
My goal has now changed... to run an 8K (5 miles)!
