I know this going to sound ironic, but I usually find Week 5 feels so much harder than Week 4. On paper it doesn’t look that much worse. Yet the first running day usually slaps me in the face. Wow, this running things is hard. I don’t say this to discourage you, rather the opposite. By day three, it will seem much easier.

For some of you, this is the most you’ve probably ever run. I remember being shocked that occasionally I was able to go even further than recommended. Even so, if this feels a little more difficult than you expect, press on. It gets better. You’ve come so far. You can do this. 3.1 miles is calling you.

Week 6, here we come!
