Tough run today

I've now been running just long enough to recognize when I'm not having a great week. That would include this week. I want to be able to run a 10K in the near future without killing myself, but I can't seem to break through the 5K distance.

I started the Bridge to 10K this week, and so far, I'm not doing so hot. Week 1 is supposed to be 3 sessions, consisting of jogging 10 minutes, then walking 1 minute, and repeating 4 times. So far I've done that once... and the next two sessions I was only able to eke out 3 repeats. Today was just plain rough and I really had to mentally push myself to finish the last 5 minutes of the third 10 minute jog, and ran over a minute slower than my first 10 minute jog. I felt like I couldn't catch my breath. I'm not sure what is causing the slowdown, but I'm hoping that after a rest day tomorrow, things will pick up again.

In better news, I bought some new duds off ebay yesterday and got them hand-delivered that night. Yay for the seller living five minutes away from me! I wore them today and am pleased with my purchase.
