Hey everyone! So on Friday/Saturday I forgot to post about my progress with running, so I will be doing that today. 
Everything is going very well and I am further ahead than I planned to be! I've only missed one planned run this last Saturday because, well... I had a bit too much wine the night before, but I made up for it on Sunday.
According to the plan I made I was going to start running 2.75 miles this week and 3 mile runs next week. But I have been doing so good that I decided to just go for a full 5k (3.1 miles) today, and it went really well! Other than some cramping in my leg, I felt great! Like I could run forever.

I also reached my goal of running under a 10 minute average mile on Friday! I completed 2.52 miles at an average pace of 9:50. Although, that was the only run I have done under the 10 minute average time. Today my 5k pace was 10:14 per mile, which I was still happy with!
Now I have a little under 2 weeks to get my 5k time under 30 minutes. I just have 2 minutes to shave off of my total run time, which is completely doable.

Anyways, Here are my stats since last Sunday via my Nike+ app.

As of this week I think I am ready to start working on a 10k training schedule and start looking for one to sign up for. I'm excited to be accomplishing my goals!
 Well, I hope everyone else is has a great week!
