In my dreams I'm a runner...

Friday, May 14, 2010

Yep for some reason in my dreams I am a runner so I finally decided that I'm going to become one! Starting Monday I will be doing the Couch to 5 k training program. I am excited and nervous about this! We live right on a highway and for the past year I have used this as an excuse not to do this, did not want to look foolish running down the highway even though I walk it all the time. I have mapped out a route in a different direction from where I usually walk, where I don't know the people who live or work there. I am worried that I won't be able to do this but I am determined to try! I have already signed up for a 5 k run in October, CIBC Run for the Cure, I have done this run before but as a walk so this will be a new one for me. I know that October is a ways off but I am giving myself lots of time to get ready and allow slip ups along the way. I will try and blog my progress and see how things go!

    I started running in January and did my first 5K on May 2nd. I was amazed that I was able to run the whole thing. Don't get me wrong - I was pretty tired. But I still did it. I'm looking very forward to my second 5k on June 13th in Kelowna.

October should be really good timing for you, plus you'll have mild weather. Good luck! You will enjoy it.

    Good luck! I have recently started to run also (not really using any program).
