Running Update

I just wanted to let you know - in case any of you have hopped on the 5K bandwagon - that I haven't missed a run yet and am currently in the middle of week 4 of my training. There is NO way I will be running 5K by the end of the 8 week training. I just run too slow! Once I get to the point where I can run for 1/2 an hour, I will work on increasing my speed to get me up to that 5K distance

I have decided to run in the Color Me Rad race in Saskatoon on September 14. I am going to run this for fun. You should really check out the website. It looks pretty awesome!

There is also a race in Martensville. A former teammate let me know about it. She has looked into it, but they aren't sure when they are going to run it yet. She is going to keep me posted. I would like to run a 5K to see how fast I can go and it would be great to do it in my home community.

As the summer progresses, I will work on increasing my speed over increasing the distance I can run. I have no desire to run a 1/2 marathon (Jes you are crazy), let alone a 10K. Two reasons for this:
     1. I don't want to spend more than 40 minutes working out.
     2. I like going fast.

I am always looking for encouragement, so if you want to be a virtual running partner, let me know :-)


  1. Sometime soon, I'll hopefully start running again! :s Especially if I'm going to FINISH 5k at CMR :s :)

  2. Way to go on keeping with it :)

    I know it is mentally satisfying to run 30 minutes with no breaks. However, I would like to say that I timed myself a few times doing 5K and actually had better times when I took short walking breaks when I needed them. The difference wasn't huge, but it did surprise me.

  3. Good for you! I am running in Color Me Rad as well. Not too sure I will be able to run the entire 5kms, as I haven't been very disciplined in my training! Lol
