Once I get to a point that I want to run more than a 5K these are really good pointers. I do want to run more than a 5K one day, possibly even a marathon, but I have a ways to go. It typically takes 10 -12 weeks to train for a 1/2 marathon which is 13.1 miles.
Official time 34.17; 11 min mile 😉
Never thought I’d run a 5K or run for fun at all really. But now that I have my first 5K under my belt, I just might get the itch and it’s a good one to have. I still haven’t lost any more than 50 lbs, but I do realize that I’m thinning out, so muscle tone is a great thing. I feel so accomplished right now, it’s amazing and I never want to loose this feeling.
D loves to run as well. Yesterday we ran one lap with the dogs and one lap without. He’s impressed with himself and how far he can run without giving out. I was actually the one that gave out yesterday, but I didn’t want to pull anything before my 2nd 5K, Nov 20th at 2pm. It’s the Triangle Expressway Trot. The company I work for has the job to stripe the highway, so we are making a team together to run. Should be great!
