Fantastic!! I'm starting week 6 myself. You CAN do it.

This may come up for you...feel free to play with your speed, I think. I think I was taking it too fast. I had to run 20 minutes straight on Saturday and thought I was going to die!! LOL! I had to back off the speed just over half way through. Later I ran again at a much lower speed and did just fine for an extended period of time, so much so that I think I could potentially run the entire 5K next time, and I'm going to try. If my theory is true, I'm going to go for distance/time first and speed later. I can increase speed through sprints.

All that to say...congratulations!! And mess around with speed.
