New Program

So I haven't been able to blog with every run since I've been back so I guess I'll just do what I can. I signed up for my first 5k today and have one month to get ready! I wanted to run this morning and my right leg was hurting so I decided to wait until tomorrow.
I'm trying something new, adding a quarter mile almost every run I'm going to run 2 miles tomorrow. If I stay on track I should be fine for my race. I wish I didn't get hurt a few moths ago it really slowed me down. I kinda lost my enthusiasm for running but think it is coming back. With taking a step back it makes me not as excited I think but now I can see a clear plan and that makes me happy.

Today's Run:
On treadmill
Max HR 191
Average HR 151
Speed 3-6MPH

I just didn't have it in me this morning, and like I mentioned it's probably all in my head. I just felt like I couldn't do it today :( That's okay though I'll have a stronger run next time. My diet has been way off for a while and I'm sure that doesn't help either.

Today I walked .25 of a mile and then ran 1 mile then walked .25. I think I'm just going to add to my run distance every time I run until I'm at 3.1 miles. The race is in about a month so I need to get up to it quick, it makes me nervous.
