~Fearless Friday~

I did two things I’ve been afraid of so far today before 5AM…..

First~ I signed up for my very first 5k! Yes that’s right you heard me right FIRST 5 k! It’s for the Boys and Girls club, It’s local in my own town, and I have exactly 6 weeks to train. My goal is to run the whole 5 k with out walking NO MATTER how slow! To me this is a…. OMG I only have six weeks to train…but, NO I am changing my mindset! I have six whole weeks to train! Let the Training Begin!

Second~ I registered to get my CPR and First Aid Certification tomorrow. I have been putting this off or had plans on that day. I am just going for it and doing this tomorrow morning!

  1. Excited about your 5k! And thanks for reminding me that I too need to get CPR certified!!! Running training tip? You have six weeks for your 5k so I’d say go ahead and take a full rest day, then time yourself on your fastest 1 mile run (even if you walk or jog some of it). Plug that in to something like mcmillanrunning.com and see what training paces are good for shorter or longer runs. Just a general guideline for you, but I think it helps to put your running effort into relative context to know if pace is good for you. Good luck!

    1. Thank you so much!!! I have been “planning” on starting races for years. This is the first one I actually registered for, it’s in my own town and there is no backing.out now! I’m already looking up what races are next!!!! Xoxo thanks again!!! Have a lovely weekend!

  2. That is SO awesome about the 5k, you will do great!! 6 weeks is plenty of time to train, I’m so excited for you!

    1. Thanks! Not gonna lie…. I’m excited for me too!!! Going shopping for a HRM today lol!!!

  3. Woo hoo! Your first 5k that’s awesome, I’m excited for you. You are going to do great, plenty of time to train. Advice? Make sure to stretch!!! Especially the calves/Achilles and IT band. They are the first to go once I start bumping up mileage. Good luck, can’t wait to hear about it!

    1. Thanks Michele!!! It’s really a big deal to me. To me if I can run the whole 5k it’s someone else’s 1/2 or marathon! I know some people who run long distances everyday. And then there’s me huffing and puffing trying to make it to the next mailbox! Lol

  4. Whoo hoo! Congrats on signing up! Enjoy every minute! You only ever run your first anything, one time

  5. Enjoy your first 5K! After each run, be sure to STRETCH! Definitely the calves, quadriceps, and the hip flexors! I recommend incorporating yoga into your exercise reigmen (i.e. rest days), which includes stretching these muscles. My favorite poses are downward-facing dog, pigeon, and sun salutations. Also, invest in a foam roll! You won’t regret it! Ashley Bordon has an awesome guide to foam rolling: http://www.ashleyborden.com/images/AshleyBorden-RollingOut-8-12.pdf 🙂
