Update on 5k training

Hey everyone,

Today at the gym on the treadmill I walked 5 minutes briskly, then ran for 10 minutes, got a little tired so then resumed walking briskly again, then ran for another 5 minutes. 
It's coming along but I know I still have a ways to go before I can run the entire 5k, which is 3.2 miles for those who were wondering.  I did one last summer but I got tired soon into the run and I had to walk at times out of fatigue.  Well I don't want that to happen again, so I am going to work my butt off to train and get in the best shape ever for this special event! I also raised $52 so far for Colorectal Cancer (which is the cause I am running for).  
I am also going to begin eating better and researching what runners eat and drink to stay healthy.  I  will be posting what I find in my research shortly.
My friend is going to be climbing the CN Tower for WWF in April so I helped her out and donated $20 to her cause after she was so generous as to donate to mine.  We helped each other out :)

Have a good night!

  1. That is so great you're running for a cause. I hate hate hate running, but I love to walk so I'm doing Relay for Life this spring. It's great to get some exercise while raising money for a great charity!
