Less than two weeks until first 5k...HELP!!!!
Tuesday, March 16, 2010
Ok, what have I gotten into here! My sis (TURNINGJ) and I will be running our first 5K together. I really want to run and not walk this thing. I have been trying to build up, but, still can't run a solid 3 miles. I just came back from the gym and did 2 miles on treadmill in 29.35. Well, I was so excited! I never made made it under 30 minutes. So, I'm thinking maybe I can do really do this! I was estimating about an hour for the race, but, now, maybe little less! woo hoo! My problem today was I had to stop after the 2 mile point. I really pushed myself and felt like my throat was closing up. So, I stopped and just walked around a few minutes and I was good again. So, what was THAT all about? Did I get that feeling because I pushed to hard (and really was out of breath?) or was it something else? I was drinking some weird flavor vitamin 10 water...maybe allergic to something in it? Who knows?! So, I will try again in a day and hopefully, I will be able to push through for the full three miles! We are doing a practice run on saturday, so wish us luck! Oh, and if any of you southern NJ sparkers want to come cheer us on ( or maybe have a stretcher ready to catch me...haha) we will be "running" in point pleasant 3/27! Woot woot...can't wait to have this done as an accomplishment! It will be another goal reached!!
