Did that running thing again today.

Thursday, July 25, 2013

I am going to stick with that 5K Your Way program just like I said I was going to. I am almost done with week 1. I loaded a running app onto my phone that after using it once I'm in love with it, it was free and it's called, "SportsTracker". The distance tracking was spot on.

I set a bit of a goal for my self. I want to participate in the Lindsay Bonistall 5K run this October 27th. It's right nearby on the SUNY Purchase campus and I have plenty of time to get ready for it. That's 13 weeks away. Maybe over the course of 12 weeks I can learn to run the entire thing and not switch to walking. Well we shall see where this goes and how I do. I am not a runner, but I do want to do these little races, especially when it's a local fund raiser.

    great to have a goal and using some tools available to you to reach it.

    I haven't been on the Purchase campus in a few years, but I remember it as being quite pretty.

    The minute you commit to running a 5K you're a runner. You shouldn't worry about how fast or slow you are, or how much you choose to walk instead of run (or as I do -- how much I look like a fat guy just barely not falling over in a forward direction) -- you're a runner. Be proud of that fact. Go you!

    Pish Posh. Just by you saying you want to "do these little races", and just by TRYING to lace up your shoes you ARE a runner. Go slower than you think you need to at first, and take plenty of breaks. Also, make sure you stretch! You will do fantastic!
