This seemed like a good idea....

10 weeks ago. See that lovely little running ticker on the right hand side? Yep, I'm participating in my first 5K this Saturday. I don't have a prayer of running/jogging the entire thing. At least not if I'd like to not keel over. I have this small confession to make. Pssst, come closer. *whispers* Um, gulp, I haven't trained for this. At all.

I'm going to get my ass kicked if I run. The plan is to jog at least (or that what's I'm hoping for) half and walk the rest. I think I can do that. As I told a client today, no trying. Doing. And so I shall.

Of course, my ass was kicked in bellydance tonight and I'm sore hours afterwards...so tomorrow should be real fun. I'm going to hurt for the next 4 days.

D you can do it! Just take it slow. If you start runnng...try to run for a few min walk a min then run again. It's amazing what your body will do...even without training! Can't wait to hear about it! Good luck...and most importantly have fun!

I did the same thing two years ago. I signed up for a 5K and then never trained for it. I still did it, but I walked most of the way and came in last place. But, I am still happy that I did it. You can do it Denise!!!!!!!

LOL! You mean with a full time job, DH and 2 small kids, you still couldn't find time to train? ;) Oh how we moms keep our plates full!
You know though, if you even walk the majority of it, you'll be COMPLETING your first 5k! A lot of people never even do that!
Take it easy, have fun, and enjoy the 3.1 miles. It'll be over before you know it.
Good Luck!
