My first 5K

Monday, June 24, 2013

I am doing my first 5K this coming Saturday, as my city has a Run or DYE race going on. It's just a fun race, but will be something that is new to me - so that makes it exciting. I also signed up for The Color Run in the Cities, which is just a couple weeks after this one. Same concept, just different venue.
Last week I ran 2.1 miles in one workout, so I am hoping to do that twice this week and then wait until Saturday morning to go the full 3.2. My sister is doing it with me, and actually ran a few races but is fine to walk some of it if needed. Either way, it'll be fun to do and I am excited to be apart of the Inagural race!

    Thank you everyone! I did have fun at the race, but had a setback right after crossing the start line... of all places! I seemed to have strained/pulled an ab muscle when I started running, so we walked a majority of the race. I was so bummed! emoticon

I am guessing it was caused by not warming up prior to running like I usually do, since we stood in the start line for about 40 minutes. There were times where I think we were walking faster than people were running, so I thought that was good. Plus, I don't think I would have been able to have kept a good pace when people were walking in the middle of the course, so you were weaving in and out of them... and the terrain wasn't the great. It was the fiurst year my city has had something like this - so trial and error. Like I said, it was still fun though.

I am resting my body for awhile now, to heal up whatever is going on. I have The Color Run 5K on the 14th... so I am hoping to be able to at least run more than I walk. We'll see though.
