Well, I changed it up a little bit yesterday and went running with my best friend in her neighborhood. She is slightly farther ahead of me as far as running goes, but to her credit, she only left me in the dust for about 30 seconds and then came back for me. :0) Anyway, I finally broke the mile and ran 1.4 miles!
I have done some run/walk sequences, but I'm finding that just running as far as I can seems to be working better for me. I have a hard time picking back up after stopping to walk, and I think that's more mental than physical. I think I just enjoy all-out running more, and feel like I'm accomplishing more.
Today was a rest day, and I'm sure tomorrow will be too as it is Father's Day and we will be going out of town for the day. But as of Monday, I'm digging in my heels and really getting started working towards this 5k. I hope to be able to increase my distance to 3 miles within the next 3 weeks.
We'll see how it goes!
