0 to 5 in 10 days!

Went for my Sunday run today, and pushed myself to run the full 5k, it was hot and I was tired so when the phone showed 5k I stopped running since it felt like I was going to pass out. What happens?

It appears that between my phone, Runkeeper and Facebook, 150 meters just disappeared. But you know what? It doesn’t matter to me, I pretty much ran 5k’s today, way ahead of schedule and expectation, I am super happy. And I did earn the 5k badge on 4square.

Now I can start working on that time I must be able to run it a little bit faster.

If you think that my workout sessions are few and far apart, do not worry, there are only two running sessions planned per week, but that doesn’t mean that I sit idle the rest of the days. As the controlling, organizational freak that I am, there is of course a schedule;

  • Monday – Rest
  • Tuesday – Bodybalance
  • Wednesday – Morning Run
  • Thursday – Yoga
  • Friday – Rest
  • Saturday – Pilates
  • Sunday – Afternoon Run
But I think that my poor body might be in shock, as it had to go from smoking, boozing and no exercise to smoking, boozing and loads of exercise. It doesn’t know what hit it, and my appetite have increased, I feel like I do nothing but eat, constantly (yes mum, I know it is a positive thing).
The money-raising seem to have stalled though, not much have happened over the past few days, I am trying to think of ways to reach out and try to find more people who want to make a small donation to UNICEF and my race, but coming up blank. But never fear, I still have three weeks left. To be honest, I thought it would be harder to run the 5k than raise the 5k, that showed me.
And don’t forget, if you want to donate, or if you have friends that are feeling generous, this is the link;
