The Color Run

Thursday, February 13, 2014

I found out today that The Color Run is (hopefully!) coming to MY town!

Now, I've never done a 5k, though I have hiked that far on numerous occasions. When you think about it, 3 miles isn't really that far.

Except, I don't want to walk this sucker. I want to jog. And at the very least some combination of the two.

So I made my way to SP's 5k training plans, and I chose the walk/jog option and just a little while ago, I attempted day 1 to see where I stand.

Walk 4 min. Jog 1min x5.

I managed to do it twice, and finished out the 25 minutes with just walking. Clearly I have a long way to go. And just over 2 months to do it. Probably not enough time, but certainly enough to make some progress, which is just fine by me.

I haven't been truly active since my car accident in 2011. It's time to get this ol' body rust free and running smooth!

    There were two in October! Color Run and another one that's basically the same thing but a different name. They were one week apart.

    emoticon emoticon 2 months is plenty of time to get ready as long as you aren't planning to sprint.

    The good news is, these are NOT competitive events. They're about fun; almost no one runs the whole thing... the point is to get messy! Can't do that while you're setting a PR. :)

What a great fun goal. We all have to start somewhere. It is great you started and if you do a little each day you will be running in no time.
