How am I feeling going into Week 5? One word: FANTASTIC! My knees hurt a little bit, and I'm not sure how the new shoes are working out. I'm not sure if I'm getting shin splints because of the new shoes or if because I'm running the longer distances in my old worn out shoes. We'll see how all that works out, but I'm kind of pumped for this coming week! Especially since I'll be at 5K mileage this weekend!

Good luck! I have a new appreciation for this, as (and you're the first person I'm telling) I'm going to start training for a sprint-triathlon! You're doing great...
