My first road 5K

Monday, October 08, 2012

Hey folks,

Sorry for the no food blogs but got busy and the eating was not paleo but in range so decided to chuck the blogs ...and also I have not packed yet and we leave friday morning..Its ME we are talking about..i usually pack a month have to do that..

So I ran my first road 5k on saturday...I ran it in 36min 10sec...yay..My record was 42minuted during training but I ran it under 39min (my goal for the race) and without stopping...yay..I am proud of myself:) Next I want to train properly and do a 10K. I will take more time and train for it..not just wing it..coz I want to be a proper runner and not some random 5k and be done...I want to do a half and be proud of my time...

thanks to so many people for inspiring me to run!!!!

take care and will catch up soon..

    Way to go! I'm planning on running a 5K myself (and eventually a half-marathon). I keep on putting it off though. Thanks for the much needed inspiration.

    You're officially a runner now! Yay!! emoticon emoticon
