So I just picked up my first ever running package for my 5km race on July 1st.... now it really sinks in and I am freaking out. All these thoughts are going thru my head. Why did I do this? I am so not ready? I am going to burn out the first kilometer or worse I will trip over my feet.
I've been taking it easy this last week to rest up for the race but that break is making me feel freaked out that I haven't been practicing that distance... I slowly calm myself down and say "well I'll finish it one way or the other"!
Wish me luck!
So we decided to meet up in town and run the 5km route for our race since all of us have registered for it and now are committed to doing it one way or the other. lol
Now I am still not running the whole time but I am running for longer periods. It varies from 5min at a time to shorter depending on my lungs. But when I am walking I am doing a very fast walk (I have very long legs lol) so I can keep up not too badly.
My stats are:
Pace: 10min per mile
Not great and feeling down thinking it's horrible I all of a sudden come to the realization that I just ran 5km which is a first in my life!
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
