5K Your Way -- Day 1

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Hubby and I have been kicking around the idea of a 5K in the spring. So yesterday I searched spark teams and joined 5K Your Way Rookie Running program. I completed Day 1 yesterday. Week 1 is walk for 4 minutes run for 1 and repeat 4 times for a 20 minute program. Repeat this step 3 times your first week.

I really thought I wouldn't be able to walk this morning. I have NEVER, EVER .... let me repeat that for emphasis.....NEVER, EVER run for pleasure. Unless something was chasing me or playing softball in my teens! It wasn't too bad.

By the 4th 1 minute run I had to pull the emergency plug on the treadmill but I did it!!


I think I might be a slow & fat runner yet!!

If running is too much, you can always speed walk!

    I started running two years ago! It's a super slow process. Take your time, take care of your knees and feet! You will be running before you know it. I started a walk / jog and then I was just running! You can do it!

    Ive been thinking about a 5K as well, but I'm scared to give it a go. Maybe I'll have to give it a try!

    Congrats on making it through the first day! I plan to start adding 5K training to my program in September. It'll be interesting. Good luck to you and your husband!
