My first 5K

I'm "training" for a 5K in the end of February. Although I've run a half marathon I've never run a 5K, that's a little backwards to most people I think. I have a friend who wants to run a 5K in 27 minutes, and I'm running with her, so it's our goal to meet that speed.

I ran 3 miles on Saturday (5K is 3.1 miles) I finished in 31 minutes, but I got a horrible side stitch around .75miles and ended up walking for a little bit around 1.5 miles. So all in all my time wasn't bad since I walked, but I've got 4 weeks to take 4 minutes off my time. I'm pretty sure I can do that I guess... I've got to work on distance, speed and get some cross training in too. I'm going to be doing  a lower ab workout too, gotta strengthen that core!!

So hopefully I will be ready to reach that goal time in a few weeks. Seems crazy to me, but possible if I try hard!
