I think I can

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I am up to 2.5 miles of walking now. I am sure I can do the 5k on my birthday in January. Now I am wondering.... can I make 5k by the end of this month? There is a turkey trot on Thanksgiving day consisting of a 5k walk. I think I am going to sign up, I think I can do it.

Now I am wondering.. could I run a 5 k by my birthday? Is running a bad idea with my spine issues? hmmmmmmmmmmmm, I am tempted. I need to talk to my doc.

My brain must be really working on these ideas. All night long I dreamed of racing. One dream I was swimming laps in a race, another I was running. My brain must think I can do an iron man competition.. lolololol.... but it forgot the bike part.

    How exciting! The Thanksgiving walk sounds like a good plan! (I have bad ankles and knees, so it isn't for me, but they have one near me that always sounds like great fun.)

What if you ran part of the Turkey trot (just to see how feasible it is for January). Then you could walk the rest if you need to. And I'm sure they have a pickup wagon for those who aren't quite able to make it. Really it sounds like you'd have nothing to lose by signing up and giving it a try, plus you still have a little more training time before T-day.

My Y has a mini-triathlon with 20 minutes of swimming, stationary bike, and treadmill. Maybe someday I'll give that a try.
