5k Run! 6 months post op!



Recommended Posts

I'm happy today! After about 14-15 weeks of training I finally clocked a 5k in 36 min 13 sec. My training interval was to be 35 minutes, but I stepped it up today, just making what seemed to be incrementally longer strides than last time, and I was real close to a 5k, so I just went extra minute.

I hate running too! But doing it to get fit for another activity/obstacle course (GoRuck.com). But now I might even do a Halloween Zombie run where people are to run/walk. 5k course with touch football flags and try to stay away from "zombies" on the course.

The Halloween Zombie run sounds like a lot of fun! Congrats on all your accomplishments! I'm hoping I can get back into running 5ks once I lose more weight.

Congrats!!! Sounds like a lot of fun. This is something I hope to be able to participate in at some point. Just have to work out some other issues first, along with the weight loss. Good luck on the with the Zombie run.

Keep walking. You need to be able to at least walk a 5K, then you work up from there. I found the 9 week plans aggressive. Whatever plan you use, feel free to adjust it.
