Just as recovery is filled with small successes that add up to long term sobriety, your training is a series of successes that are giving you so much to be proud of. We are now in Week 5 of our training, and already you have achieved a lot. Not only have you been consistently getting up and showing up, you are getting stronger and going further.
The most common distances for races in the distance running community are a 5K, 10K, half marathon, and full marathon. If you did the full 3 miles either this Sunday or the Sunday before, you completed the equivalent of a 5K! That’s the first major milestone. Awesome! In just a few more weeks, you’ll be celebrating the fact that you just completed the equivalent of a 10K!
Yes, you can do this. Keep believing in yourself, and keep showing up, and you’ll be very proud of what you accomplish.
