5k, here I come

We all need goals. Big goals, little goals, it doesn't matter. I decided that I was going to do a 5k in February, so I've been getting back into shape and into running mode.

Monday, I went to the gym and ran 3 miles on the indoor track. It felt so good and I was in such a great mood after I left. JP even commented that he could tell I was running again. I wasn't stressed out from work when I got home and I wasn't nearly as tired as I normally am at the end of the day.

But... by the end of the night I was feeling the soreness creep into my legs.

Last night, I ran 3 miles again. It felt good to be out there, but my legs were heavy and it wasn't quite the blissful run it was the night before. Stretched out a ton!! And, man was I tired last night. I sat down on the couch after dinner and quickly got back up. I knew if I didn't, I'd be down for the count.

At least I know I can run 3 miles and will be able to get through the race. :)

Getting my hair cut tonight (finally!) so I may have to rely on my Women's Health 10 minute workouts DVD in my living room.

Work is crazy busy so I better get back!

Woo hoo. That's great that your ready for the 5K. Isn't it awesome thought how we feel after we do a run, even if muscles are aching.

Good for you! It's amazing how energizing and invigorating small victories can be.
