5k and plateau

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

soo...I was hesitant to post this but I will be running my first 5 k.My friend just let me know last week she wants to do it and Im not a runner but I decided to join her.
I am not stressing over my food anymore as I was before.I am eating more carbs and focusing on clean eating and keeping my protein up.
I can do this-my plan is to run /walk 3 times a week on top of my regular workouts.Hopefully that will help with my plateau ??
and I also resumed using my body bugg !

    I recently trained for my first 5k, started off on the tmill at the gym but made great progress when I moved to running outside. I love running now! Good luck and have fun!

    Hey girl, I'm proud fo you for taking on this new fitness adventure! Trying something new (running) will definitely shock your body and I bet it'll help bust your plateau. But regardless of the scale, you're going to feel GREAT!

    Hi Natilie! Thanks for the comment. I haven't exactly been gone....just usually only have time to pop in real quick on the weekends...if that. It was good catching up on all the blogs that I've missed. I'm afraid a daily buddy...well, I would really let them down since "daily" just isn't working out for me, being consistent that is.

    Enough about me though. LOVE that you are going to run a 5k!! What a nice thing for you to do for your friend. Maybe in the process you'll discover a love of running? Good luck to you!

    I think not stressing about food will help ease the emotional eating. The more I try to eliminate and cut out the worse I get when it comes to binging. Instead focusing on eating clean, getting those 5-6 mini meals a day, and upping protein will definitely help you make progress. This kind of progress might be slower but it's more likely to stick longer!

    I was sooo nervous before my first 5K - actually I've been soooo nervous before EVERY race! (I've only been in 5.) It's huge motivation but I find it of luck!!
