Stealing a page from @Keels (ok, maybe not stealing..how about being inspired by) I have set myself a challenge for 2015/2016 but for 5k's. I call it my New Spring Resolution since I am well past the point of it being the New Year. About me: roxymama 34 yr old, Mom of a toddler. Formerly very active. Kind of sedentary now. Never a runner. Supportive husband. Dad ran my whole childhood. Father-in-law runs 5k & 8ks regularly year round. I started dipping my toes into running in Feb/March this year because of this board. I can't count how many Disney running TR's I've stalked over the years. Honestly I get so sappy watching all these people crossing the finish line or even just attempting to. Like more choked up than when I watch the Notebook. I am proud of these strangers and so intensely jealous of how happy they must feel completing these runs. So over the last several weeks I have been doing sporadic long walk/runs outside and then also joined a Planet Fitness close to my house for weeknight treadmill sessions. At the very end of March I entered a 5k in the walker category (yeah I chickened out of getting a timed bib with the runners at the last minute) but started at the very front of the walking group and was so inspired after half a mile that I ended up running right into the running group and finished it running about every three blocks and walking every two. I basically caught the run bug really hard. My 2015/2016 5k Journey GOALS! 1) Run three times a week. Using my couch to 5k app. By May I should be running 3.1 miles without having to walk a lot. I am not giving myself a pace goal yet...I just want to do it. - ACHIEVED! 2) Sign up for 5ks on a regular basis through Fall. Register as a runner, start with the runners, keep running...don't chicken out! - ACHIEVED! 3) My town has seven 5ks in 2015. If you complete 3 of them, you get a special medal. I technically didn't get a time for my first race, and I have 5 more tries right now. Next one in June. I want that medal! -ACHIEVED! 3) Disney Marathon Weekend 5k 2016! Hotel booked! Flight booked. No getting out of this one. - ACHIEVED! Updated to include 2016 goals. 2016 starts page 18. 1) Run an 8k - ACHIEVED! 2) Run a 10k - ACHIEVED! 3) Run a 15k - ACHIEVED! 4) Complete Evergreen Park challenge again this year - Not possible, date conflicts 5) PR in 5k - ACHIEVED! 27:49 6) try to run three times a week as much as life allows. Include some cross train to keep life exciting and to make me stronger - ACHIEVED! 7) hydrate better and eat better this year with end-game being at least 10-15 lbs lighter - ACHIEVED...Now to keep it off!
