September Goals:

Run 4.00 miles

Run non-stopping

Run more miles per week

More Stretching (before & after)


Today I went for a run in the evening with my baby and the stroller. The weather was nice. I ran just 2.00mi but it felt good to run. I need it so bad today. I enjoy this time my me time. Is a little harder when you push the stroller but it was amazing. I felt so greatful to have the oportunity to run around and have my baby by my side.

My first 5k event of 2017

Hi!

I recently participated in a 5k run/walk event. But I want to start from where or how a found about it and decided to join the event.

The 5k event was this past weekend; but the weekend before I was in a community event there was this booth about running for people in need of food. So I decided to stop by and ask. I knew  beforehand about the event. I just wanted to talk and know more about it in person. The person on command talk briefly about the event and gave me a registration paper and then she say: ” For participating in the community event this time if you registered today you can use this code for no fee”. Wait! What? I was so excited I came home and I registered. Without training at all. Without running that distance in almost 3 yrs. Just like that I registered for the 5k event. I was very excited, motivated and a little bit nervous to run and participate in an event.

I just started running on april again so for me this is huge distance because my average distance is around 0.50mi to 1.00mi. So Can you imagine how nervous I was? In a scale 1/100 I was 120 haha.


**I want to take a moment before continuing with the recap and say Thank You to all the people how encourage me and send me positive vibes on the post where I announce that I was participating in the 5k event. It felt so nice having the support of all of you the virtual family. Thanks again!


Recap:

Let’s start…

I arrived  at 7:50am a little late but it was okay. I went by myself and straight to the start/finish line. They gave the protocol before starting and the more they talk the more my anxiety high up. I was nervous but I wasn’t demonstrating it.

At 8:02am they 5k start I was very confident with the route I begin to run everything was fine trying to skip the walking pals then it hit me hard just before the 1.00 mile. I was like omg! my pace was fast and my legs hurt but I need to keep moving. Then I stop running and start walking but I wanted to run so I started running and then again I need to stop but this time was my breathing. So I walked a little more, then I became desperate when it hit the 2.68mi mark. I was like  “come on, you can run” but when I start running I don’t know what happen that I couldn’t keep up so I start doing interval 2 minutes running 2 minutes walk. Trying to reach the finish line. When I get there I see the timer It was very hard to realize the time you did. It wasn’t what you expect. But Come on I didn’t train for this event. It was amazing seeing all that people running for a good cause, and helping others. Overall I think I’m doing it again next year!! Oh YEAH! But this time I’m training for it!

 


5k run/walk Results:

00:50:40 min

16:19 pace

Overall 323rd of  523

 

Female: 181st of 329

F. 30-39: 30th of 53

 


About the results: 

The time it wasn’t what I expect but I accept it because I know I did my best.

The pace for run/walk I think it was great.

Overall/female/and female age group it was amazing.

 


This 5k event was my slowest one ever but not my last.

So I will keep training for my next!

My 5k Plan! 2017

Hi!

I have been thinking in suscribe to a 5k. I was searching a good way to training myself to do it. I found this page DAREBEE a few weeks ago and I have been using it; the cardio for the day system when I don’t run. So navegating in the page I saw they have a running plan for a 5k that take 8 weeks. (here the link 8 weeks to 5k)

Next week on Tuesday I going to start. I might put my touch to the plan but I’m going to follow that plan for the next 8 weeks. I’m excited for this plan.

I’m thrilled that my determination this days is in a good level.

This is very important to me.

Warm up RUN

Hi!

First Run of the Year

Starting from the bottom!

Today I decided to go out for a run. The weather was 33°F, it was a little colder than I was expecting but that’s what you get when you decided to run in winter. Right!

I just ran 0.50 mi. I was feeling like I was slow like a turtle, then I check my pace I was running like my normal pace but in some point I was short of breath. Then I walk a little and started running again to finish with little distance for today run. I got a little frustrated but this is just the beginning. I know that sometimes is going to be harder, the thing that matter is not quitting.

This is my year I’M NOT Giving up!

Good Luck everyone with every goal that you make for this year! Don’t give up…!

Santa’s 5k (recap)

Hi!

I know I was missing in action. For health, moving, new place ‘state’ issues I didn’t wrote or updated anything in this blog.

Let’s start with this Santa’s 5k recap.

This event was on Saturday, December 14, 2013.

Place: Veterans Park | Milwaukee, WI

Weather: 19 degrees F. Snowing a lot.

Fun fact: [ This place is near Lake Michigan ]

The area was cover with snow, so that difficult the run. It was hard, maybe we take to many minutes to made it to the finish line but we did it!

I went with my husband and my two running partners and friends.

Here a photo from that day.
