5k motivation

Thursday, October 25, 2012

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!!!! :)))

    Your doing a great job; being that you where sick last week. Just slowly ease back into your workouts. Don't be to hard on yourself. Like you said it takes time and patience's.
    Things will get better week by week. emoticon emoticon
