I've decided to jog/walk 5k

Friday, February 25, 2011

Good morning Sparkies! What an awesome gift we all have, life, another day to correct the mistakes of yesterday. Speaking of yesterday, I decided I want to be able to run a 5k by the summer time.

My husband and I have been jogging/walking this new route which is about 3.5 miles. So I figure 5k equals 3.1 miles so I can do it! Last week when I first did it it took me an hour and eight minutes. Yesterday I shaved 13 minutes off of my original time! I was so excited. And the winds were crazy high yesterday so I can't wait to continue training.

So today I login to Spark and see this Virtual 5k Run. No coincidence that yesterday I decided I wanted to complete a 5k run. But this is awesome! You decide whether you want to run, walk, jog/walk. There is a training program and there are beginner's options. The race is seven weeks from now and the training program is five weeks. So I know I will be well prepared for this race. And you are automatically put in a team so there is plenty of support and others like you who want to make the dream of completing a 5k in whatever time a reality.

So I just wanted to share how hype I am about this 5k thing and will keep you guys posted on how I'm progressing. Stay blessed! :-)

    good Luck and keep up the hard work!
