I did it! ... 5k

Monday, September 24, 2012

Though I found out later that the course was actually a bit short, I am still thrilled to have completed the event. I jogged about 80% of the race. I probably could have walked it in about the same time, but was so happy to have been able to jog for so long. It took me nearly an hour. Perhaps I'll do better if I talk myself into another. For now I'll be content to walk outdoors and jog on the treadmill. emoticon

5k Tomorrow

Friday, September 21, 2012

Some combination of walking and jogging will get me to the finish. This will be my first race ever. Even when I was able to run before ms stole so many things, I never ran a race. My 9 y.o. gs is also in this event. He will have a long wait at the finish line for me, but I made a promise to him that I will finish. My dd ran her first 5k at his age and he is eager to beat her time. His mom ran competitively through hs and college and now runs marathons and half marathons. Tomorrow she is our cheer leader for a change. emoticon emoticon

One week to 5k

Saturday, September 15, 2012

I had a down day today after a too-busy week that ended with dh needing some surgery yesterday. He's doing fine, but I am really dragging. So, gave myself a bit of time to regroup and will hit the trail and gym again tomorrow afternoon. I think I'm making progress, but it is slow going. Would love to run more than walk next week, but I think that would take a miracle. We'll see.

Day 3 training for 5k

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

A better night of sleep, a healthy breakfast and mid-morning snack, chugged some water... Laced up my running shoes and headed out the door and up the canyon. I jogged and walked for 90 minutes. ... Abit more than a 5k! Hooray. I will go back out for a walk to do some errands in about an hour. Should leave the 10,000 step goal in the dust. Little by little we can do it!

Day 2 training for 5k

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Today I felt a cold coming on ... Dh has sinus infection so suspect I caught a bug from him. So, I was really dragging. I got out for a walk which gave me much more energy. I will be back at my walk/jog tomorrow. Little by little we can do great things!
