While I was a little nervous I just sort of approached it as just another run..I knew I wouldn't place in the top 3 of my age group so no pressure to try to win a medal. I just wanted to do it to see what my time would be. I actually finished 8 seconds faster than I had hoped I would finish. Just keep it slow and easy and everything else should fall into place. Just remember..don't start out too fast..save your rocket fuel for later. HAVE FUN!!
"You don't have to eat a perfect diet to be healthy. You will not suddenly get a nutrient deficiency or gain weight from one snack, one meal, or one day of eating. It's what you eat consistently over time that matter. Progress, not perfection, is what counts." Principle 10 of Intutive Eating -
Hi, everyone. I was on SP for several months last year and then life got crazy busy! I started walk/running last August through October and started up again in May. (I have a hip that does not tolerate running on a treadmill, so did not run in the winter months - too cold in Wisconsin for my lungs!) I am planning to do my first 5K in a couple of weeks. I've never done an organized run/race before and am excited/nervous! My training has been slow and easy because of my hip, but I did 2.65 miles yesterday, so I think the distance will not be a problem. I am here just to gain some knowledge from those more experience in this!
