5K Training: Week 5

Hi, all! I decided to stop with the training logs when writing about my race training. It's boring and somewhat repetitive. Not what I want this blog to be.

First off, I'm in better spirits both mentally and physically than I was last week. I hit a rough spot, but realized that it's not about being the best but that I cross the finish line. Hard to believe that it's just over five weeks away! Also, I got the confirmation e-mail yesterday, so there really is no turning back now!

I'm repeating week 4 of the C25K this week, since I didn't feel so strong at the end of last week. I'm seeing improvement mentally as well as physically this week.I managed to do 2.3 miles without stopping on the treadmill on Monday. I went out on the road today, and realized that my endurance outdoors on the road may not be where I want it to be, but I have come a long way in just 5 weeks. I may still have to do a run/walk combo on race day, but I WILL be a 5K finisher!

Have a good weekend!



  1. It's good that you listened to your body and went back to week 4! Running is all about paying attention to your strength and to what your muscles are telling you. Getting that confirmation email is a fun and scary thing. No turning back now!

    Good luck girly!

  2. Hi Tracy,
    I decided to check out your blog after receiving the Foodie Pen Pals box that you sent me. I hope that you will do well in your training. Have a great day.
