Tomorrow will be the first day of the second half of my 10k training. I'm sure I've mentioned before that I'm using an interval program similar to Couch to 5k. I've really enjoyed how "sneaky" this program has been. Week 6 has me running more than twice what I was running the first week, but I totally didn't notice that I was doubling my time and mileage, because it just adds one minute to each interval each week. Sneaky little program... haha.
To be honest, I'm actually feeling REALLY good! It's surprising to me, and I keep being surprised by how good I feel. I'm really enjoying this experience so far and am excited to take the next step towards running a half marathon. The idea of running 13.1 miles still seems a little unreal to me, but 4 months ago the thought of running for 3 whole minutes seemed like an impossible task. I'm excited to see myself grow physically, mentally and spiritually as I keep taking the next steps forward. And it's a blessing to know there are people supporting me along the way. :)
Only 47 days until the 10k... and 194 days until the half marathon!
