I Ran A 5K!!!



Recommended Posts

I have been working up to running non stop and I was able to do it! I had actually ran 3 miles straight at the gym a few days prior so I KNEW I had no excuse not to do it at this race. Prior to this I had been stopping at 1 mile but I knew that was my brain and not my body stopping me. I have another 5k this weekend and I can't wait to run that one too. By no means is this fast running but it is a start and I feel stronger and faster every week. If I can do this now it is exciting to imagine what I will be able to do with 50 more lbs off me!

Sorry I just wanted to share this NSV.

CONGRATS! That is a huge step and you really are showing insight when you point out the mental piece vs the physical piece regarding your training for the 5k - continue to draw on the power of your 5k... you RAN the WHOLE Way ... thats a big big deal ... Consistency and incremental increases will launch you to the next level... 30 seconds more : )

You are my hero!! I have been such a slacker lately with regard to exercise. It is my goal to run a 5K at Thanksgiving time frame. I have to get back to the gym and you have given me some motivation to do so today. Thanks!!

I love hearing news like this. What an accomplishment, and it sounds like you are learning a lot about yourself through the journey. Keep up the pace of good work. I'm sure you'll be telling us about the Tri-athalon you finished down the road, or the full marathon.

What do you see as the key to this success. Please share as I'd like to know what works.

Congratulations!!!

Watch out! They are addictive! I have 2 scheduled this fall and am looking for more. I wouldn't mind running in the winter but it seems as though races aren't big at that time. Go figure. :-/ lol.

Congrats!

I already know what you mean! I had another one last week which was a blast! It was a color run :) I attached a picture of my husband and I AFTER the race!

Now I am already planning my next 3 races!
