1ST 5K and...................
I'm a Nervous Wreck!
I have my 1st 5K this Sunday and I am going bananaz over it. I am losing sleep over this mess, which is crazy. I think I’m feeling this way because, I know I haven’t completed the C25K due to me being sick, weather delays and my foot injury but, most of all because, I know in my heart I won’t be able to run the whole thing. Is that bad if I can’t run the whole thing? Will others look at me with the side eye for walking when I’m tired? Is it against the 5K rules?
I am very competitive and I’m not sure I feel this way because, my friend who’s a runner is doing it with me and I know she is going to whup my tail and leave me in the dust. She runs 3 miles almost every day for the past year. She should leave me in the dust with the training she has, right?
For anyone who ran their 1st 5K or did anything that terrified the mess out of you, how did you get through it? For 1st 5Kers did any of you have to walk? What did you think about to keep your mind off of being out of breath and from dropping down and almost dying?
As you all know I am catching up on everyone’s Blog and came across Alexia's post over at dimplesnatcher. It was very informative and it was comforting to know she felt the exact same way I am feeling right now. She mentioned or maybe it was a comment someone left for her about my brain is going to tell me to stop way before my body wants to. How do I get past that? How do I push my body through that notion of wanting to stop because, my brain is telling it to? Any suggestions or feed back on this is greatly appreciated.
- 30 Day Shred Level 1
- 35mins of Spin. ( I would have ran but, of course it’s raining Cats and Dogs over here) SMH!!!
Have a great evening and Keep on Pushing!!!
