So my first "official" 5K is still several weeks away.
But I ran 5K this morning!!!!
I hadn't planned it. I was up to 2 miles and I figured I'd run 3 today, but I'd break it up into half mile intervals. But once I got past the first half mile, I felt pretty good and decided to go for 1 mile intervals.
As I neared the end of the first mile, I decided "Why not just run the whole 3.2 miles (5K)" ????
And so I did.
And at the end I didn't feel like I *needed* to stop.
I keep going back to the fortune cookie I opened New Year's Eve 2008/9: "Don't Underestimate Yourself"
I need to remember that.
