I did it, with grace I might add ;)

I did it, I DID IT! Week 3, day 1 is complete and I was able to run the three minutes and really had enough steam to keep it going but I followed the program and walked after the three minute run.

I did lower the speed to 5.4MPH because I was afraid that I couldn't do it... now tomorrow I am planning on increasing the speed to 5.6 and then on Saturday I will increase it again if I feel good. I can't explain how worried I was about the run - I was concerned that I was not able to go for three minutes and now I think that I may be able to go longer. I think that I can do this thing and I can actually see myself running that 5K!! For someone who has struggled with joint issues all of my life this is like a dream come true.
