Classmate was talking about my running needs to be worked on (a joke because I was heading towards the restroom)
When I mentioned that I've been running close to two miles on most days to the classmate, he asked me why I was running so much.
Told him I am exercising for health reasons.
He told me that I should prepare for the 5k run that was coming up for some motivations... seeing as I am already heading towards that direction.
Thing is, I haven't really prepared for it. I can probably get close to jogging 3 miles by the end of the month, but for some people, jogging the 5k run takes months in advanced, and it has only been a few weeks since I started retraining. I've never done a 5k run outside of a treadmill (these days I go outside for running because I can do 3 miles of running/walking a lot easily than staring at a timer.)
Think I can prepare myself for the 5k run by the end of the month? I'll probably be around the 25minute mark or something if I do try.
