5 miles

So I ran 5 miles.  Seriously.  It was pretty cool.  Granted I am still doing the Jeff Galloway method.  I am doing a 1/1 ratio.  One minute of running followed by one minute of walking.  I really like this method.  Its great for training for my first half.  Maybe one day I can move past this method, but for now, I am happy with it.  It felt great. I still can't believe I did it.  I tried the slowing down the first mile and getting faster.  I did good the first mile and tried to speed it up.  I went to fast on the second mile but I am very happy with my time! Here are my splits.

1:02:20+ 0:08 (-1%)15'50"/mi
1:18:26+ 0:14 (-2%)16'05"/mi

I'm very happy with my time!  I wanted to finish under a 16:00 pace and it was 15:43.  Five miles,  I still can't believe it!

5 miles and a smile!  Run Happy!
