Time to get serious here. I have my first ever race on Sunday October 16th in Incheon.
It is a 5km race...I've never run 5km in my life. Running, I'd say the most I've done is about half that.
Is this maybe a bit stupid? Absolutely.
Do I expect an amazing finishing time? BAH! My goal is to JUST FINISH.
All I want to do is finish. Thats it. For my first race I'm not expecting ANYTHING except completion.
I just want to say that I did it. I didn't quit in the middle, I didn't stop training... I just did it. My level of fitness is SO much better than it has been ever in my life so I think it is do-able.
The only thing is I'm going to be exercising/training as much as possible in the next two weeks. Tomorrow is going to be 3km on the treadmill. Losen things up and see how I feel. I actually prefer walking outside but for running I love that treadmill. Maybe its because I think people are watching and I won't let myself be a wimp... I don't know...
One condition I need to fix is getting a mental block when I'm out on the trail. I can run much more indoors on the treadmill...but outside...I just have this stupid stupid mental block. WHICH...MUST BE STOPPED!
But if that dude can do THAT. I'm pretty sure I can run 5k in beautiful fall weather.
