The Color Run 5k

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Although I haven't started training yet because I'm still finishing up exams, I signed up to do The Color Run 5k in London today! I start training June 1st and have 6 weeks from then until the Run. I've done couch to 5k plans in the past, but always sort of given up after running for 10 minutes straight, I always have to walk for about two minutes. I'd like to be able to run for 30 minutes nonstop which is why I also bought a Running Logbook recently (aka a small notebook which I shall fill up with my running stats). The Color Run should be fun though, it's supposedly the happiest 5k on the planet when you have coloured corn starch thrown on you at every kilometer. It's my first proper organized run for charity. Anyone else getting involved in this? Anyone else keep a running logbook that has helped them in the past?

    I'm smiling just listening about your run. It sounds like so much fun. Start slow in your training - there's a training guide here on SP you can follow. Don't run but 3-4 times a week and do other exercise (strength) on off days. You can do this and it will be a fabulous experience. I'm 62 and did my first and only half marathon 2 years ago. It was on my bucket list. I never thought I could do it in years past but most of us can do so much more than we think. So set goals and go for it! It's within your reach. I wish you fun and many blessings along the way. emoticon
