No, I haven't signed up for anything, but I made my first step in doing a 5K. Last night I blogged about mapping my route and figuring out how much I would have to do to do a 5 Kl. I mapped it. Didn't wake up at 6am like I intended though. My hhusband had the day off from work though and took the kids out to give me a break. Excellent time to try to do 5 kl. The weather was perfect. It had rained earlier, so it wasn't too hot.
I gave myself a goal of doing 10 minutes worth of running. Previously I had only done a total of 5 minutes running and probably only did a total of a mile and a half. I didn't give myself a goal for total length of time. I figured I would rather just see what I could do and go from there.
Well, I did 5 kl in 1 hour, 4 minutes, and 40 seconds. Again, that's with 10 min of running. Also, I broke my record for running length. Previously I could only run for a minute and a half. Today I got all the way up to 1 min, 45 sec!
I think I am going to look at the C25K and see what that entails.
