My Training for my FIRST 5k

Hello Everyone. Today I'm going to share with you all. Some of my 5k training. Which this Saturday April 12, 2014. Will be my first 5k run. Which I'm super excited and can't wait to do it. I have been training hard for it the last couple months. Hubby was running with me but then stopped after the bus accident. Due to he hurt his knee. He is still supporting me 100% and it awesome to have him on my side. Also my friends have been supporting me to. Which it help me to have a big support team. It make me want to run even more. 

Back in high school I was on the track team as a long distance runner. Which after high school I stopped running. So this year I have decide to get back in to running. Which its not easy to get in to at first but once you do you will love it. 

On January 25, 2014 I went on my first run. Which was horrible. I could even run for 5 minute. It had me feel real bad. So a friend told me about the couch to 5k.  Program. After they told me about the program I look in to it.  Which I didn't follow the plan completely. I did it for a couple weeks and then started to do my own thing. Which was run until I couldn't no more and walked some. Then run again. My hubby was by my side to make sure I did over do it. 

With each week I was able to do more and more. Also my pace got better. 
On February 19, 2014 I ran my first quarter mile. The week after my quarter mile. I ran a full mile. Which was on February 23. After that each week I went far and far.  Which now I'm up to 2.60 Miles. 

Yesterday I ran 2.60 mile and walk the rest to 3 mile. I end at 35:12. Which I'm happy about. I'm hoping that I can run a little faster on Saturday. Over all my goal is just to finish the 5k. Then next month when I do my next 5k. I will have a time goal in mind.

Here the break down of each week of process. 
February 19, 2014 0.25 Mile
February 24, 2014 1.00 Mile
March 9, 2014 1.25 Mile
March 16, 2014 1.50 Mile
