I did it! I ran my first 5k! it was pouring rain and freezing cold but I finished the race! So damn happy to cross that finish line. Saturday night went out with friends wearing size 8 jeans and tall boots that were not wide calf. So happy.
Looking for a new challenge now...I thought maybe a 10 k or half marathon, but I am not sure if I liked running all that much. I feel like I did this so that I could cross it off my list, but now what? Any suggestions?
Congrats on running for first 5k.... great accomplishment. :) My suggestion is, depending on where you live... if you like rides... go get on a ride at an amusement park. AND please post how it feels. I cannot wait to do this. (yes, I'd be living through you)
Congrats! I was in the same boat as you. I started running just so I could do a 5k. I didn't love it but I kept doing it until the run which was in September. I am here to say that although I thought I was going to give it up I am still running four days a week. I love how quick it is and the amount of calorie burn. I can't give it up. I have become faster since my run also. I plan on doing a 10 k by February my one year anniversary of WLS.
keep running! I bet in a month you will like it much better.
