Well, I have officially begun my last week and countdown to running my first 5k!

It's this Saturday and I am pretty sure I won't be able to run the whole thing, but I am looking forward to trying. Or more realistically, huffing and puffing my way slowly through all agonizing 3.1 miles until I collapse into a sweaty, soggy, red-faced puddle at my dear husband's feet.

(He is going just for moral support. He has no idea why anyone would willingly move any faster than a comfortable snail's pace unless immediate death was imminent.)

Back to the countdown: I ran this morning after a nasty cold took me down for almost two weeks, and the passing out at the end really helped revive me! I am hoping to see how far I can run outside tomorrow after work(without my beloved music). I have grand plans to run Wednesday inside again before work to officially close out my Couch-to-5K app on my iPhone (I have one day left currently.). Then I hope to rest until Saturday's morning run. We'll see how things go with my hard-core mini training regime! My beloved hubby seems to think that might be pushing it, and he's usually right about these things.

Hey, at least I can walk too if I need to. I really hope I can run most of it though!

I'm so proud of you for signing up to do a 5K. It's very impressive! Such a great goal! You should be proud of yourself already. Can't wait to hear how it goes. Good luck with the rest of your training this week!
