So I walked my first (intentional and timed) 5k, 3.1 miles on the treadmill last Wednesday. I clocked in at 59:25. Eh. Did some running mixed in there. I want to get it down, obviously. I want to be able to run more also. I attempted another 5k yesterday, but I got halfway and was burned out. I am just coming off of being horribly sick since last Thursday and I'm still not better. I probably should ease into it a little better. I did a half 5k yesterday, 28:35 on the treadmill and tonight outside I did a 28:59 with a little bit of jogging thrown in there also.
I think this is a good idea because I will have a goal. It's not just weight loss which when I don't have a loss or I have a gain I automatically lose motivation. Which has happened A LOT. But now I will have something more to look forward to improving. I will want to go to the gym and work on improving my time. I'm excited! :)
P.S. I haven't weighed in for almost a month! Well I have and I've gained so I haven't posted. I will weigh in Monday and post no matter a gain or a loss. Ugh, why can't this just come easily? It's no matter. I need to work hard at something. And this is something I really want, so it needs to be my priority. I need to lose weight and get in shape to have a baby... that's my second number one goal. That will come, as much as I want it 5 months ago, it will happen when it's meant to and the more I lose and the healthier I get, it will be better for both of us. I'm just impatient and I want results immediately. That needs to change!! Here goes another try. Wish me luck! And good luck to everyone as well. We can do this!!!! :)))
