Hey Sarah! Welcome to the team. I actually trained on both the treadmill and outdoors but mostly the treadmill because I started my training when it was cold and yucky outside. I too live here in the great state of PA except I'm on the other side of the state. About 50 miles north of Phila. They way I get through my treadmill workouts is just put on my MP3 player with some great music and zone out. If I don't get in that zone then yes I agree with you it is hard to get through that 3 miles but it is doable. Good Luck with your 5K and I'll tell you once you do your first one you'll been signing up for your next one and your next one and your next one. LOL! Keep up the good work and good luck. emoticon

Hey Anita, I just joined the team but congrats on your 5k last month! That's a really great time. I'm signing up for my fist 5k today (not happening til September) but I'm really excited.

Where did you train -on the treadmill or outside? I like both but I get so bored on the treadmill its hard to try for that full 3 miles....

Hi Everyone! Sorry I haven't been on all week. Tuesday night I had to rush my hubby to the hospital with severe abdominal pain and the did an emergency surgery on him. They thought he had a small bowel colapse but it turned out to be a enlarged appendix and they had to remove that. He came home this afternoon. He did make me go do my first 5K on Wednesday, he said he would be really mad at me if I didn't go after all the training I did. I did really well. Ran it in 31.08 minutes and finished 81st out of 128. Just wish he could have been there with me.

I started out on the eliptical tonight because all the treadmills were being used when we got there. I did a 30 minute Hill Climb which went up to level 18 (OMG, I thought I was going to die!), then did 1mile on the treadmill in 11.24 mins, and then 30 minutes on the bike. I'm definitely going to sleep tonight! emoticon

Anita you are so ready for you first 5k! You are becoming quite the runner and just an overall athlete with all this swimming and biking. Maybe there is a triathalon in the future?

Been sick since yesterday. I didn't workout at all yesterday. Today I went to the Y even though I feel like doo doo. I did my 5K in 36.32minutes and 2 miles on the eliptical in 25.40 minutes. I really did sweat so hopefully I sweat this bug right out of me. Now I'm going to go to bed and hopefully sleep the rest of this out of me. Have a good night everyone! emoticon

I don't think I over training. Last week Sun, Mon, Tue and Wed was not at the Y. Sun, Mon, and Tue snowmobiling and Wed Y was closed due to weather. I think I was just having a low energy day. I'm just going to keep plugging along. emoticon

It might also be a sign of overtraining. But some days we just have low energy, too.

Did a 2.5 mile run/walk on the treadmill going between incline 2/1. Then I did a 1.5 mile on the eliptical on resistance 3. I felt terrible tonight I was huffing and puffing and just didn't feel like I had a good workout. Maybe it's because its Monday, tomorrow is another day. emoticon

good progress.

just make sure to stick with it and rest up when your body asks you to. the speed will come in time. right now your main focus should be building a good endurance base and strengthening your connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments.

keep up the great work.
