2. I'm down to the last few weeks of the 5k training. I'm up to a 4k in the training, but I'm not yet at the point where I am able to run for the entirety. I'm getting there, though. I run the same route each time and I can tell that I get further along before I feel like I need to walk. This is good, albeit unexpected - if that make sense.
3. My speed is starting to increase. I range anywhere between 8-9 minutes a kilometer. For the majority of my training, I've always been anywhere from 9-11 minutes a kilometer. Will I get down to 6 minutes a kilometer? Who knows. We'll see, but I'm glad the speed training has started to work.
4. It takes me about 35 minutes or so to do 4k - in the run/walk combination. When I did the 5k in January, it took me about 37 minutes. I'm calling a fluke on that race and I'm using my 5k times from last year as a guide.
My first time goal is 40 minutes. Then, we'll progress from there.
5. I have a 5k planned for the end of June and I hope to be able to run it all. We will see.
