2nd week of 5k your way walking program complete

Saturday, April 02, 2011

I completed my 2nd week of training for a 5k that I plan to walk on May 1st. I finished this week with a 2 mile walk and it went great. I actually added some jogging time in with this 2 mile walk and to my surprise I actually like it. I have never been one to run or jog as a form of exercise, but the way I felt afterwards was amazing. I feel energized and have an almost high feeling. I am now thinking that maybe I will jog 1/2 and walk 1/2 of the 5k. Next weeks training will be adding more distance, so I am going to try more jogging and see how it goes. Do I see myself as a potential all out jogger/runner in the future? Who knows, anything is possible.

    Great job!!! Take it slow though - if you're body ends up wanting to just walk, listen to it. I wouldn't want you to get burned out before you 5K!!

    Good for you fellow Sparkie!

    I actually start training for my first 5K run Monday. The 5K I am running is an annual run and this year it is on June 4th...leaving me 9 weeks to prepare. I am using the 'from couch to 5K' training may want to look them up on here (they have a SP team).

    Good luck! Keep moving forward!
