I'm sparking MY WAY to a 5K

Friday, February 13, 2009

So.....I have never liked running, BUT........I decided that I will get off my behind and start to do something about this and change it. Our daughter runs track & cross country and since her brothers are leaving one by one.......she has no more running partners after June 15th other than her friends at school.
So what better way to spent even more time with our busy princess than run with her. My goal is to be able to run 1-2 miles with her at least.
Our Lubbock Sparkers are planning to attend the CASA 5K run on April 18th, so only 9 weeks until then..........I looked around SP and found the perfect article for myself: Spark Your Way to a 5K www.sparkpeople.com/reso
urce/fitness_articles.asp?

I went to the gym this morning and worked on DAY 1 of Week 1 of my new training schedule......I did 30 min instead of 20 min.......my time for 2 miles was 29.30 minutes.......I AM PROUD OF MYSELF and I KNOW I CAN & WILL DO THIS!!!!!
April 18th 2009 will be a great day - my 1st 5K run for a great cause.
IF I CAN DO IT - SO CAN YOU!!!! emoticon
