Day 1 of 2011: Run a 5K

 

by Laurie

It’s cold out today-snowing and -9 (celsius). Yet somehow I am very good at ignoring the reality of the cold and talking myself into things. Today – I talked myself, and my DH, into signing up for our very first 5k run! It’s called the Resolution Run which is obviously very appropriate considering it’s on January 1st. We aren’t partiers, so I’m not worried about getting up on the 1st and the race isn’t until 11 am anyway. But my husband did point out that January might be a crazy time for an outdoor race, and I’m pretty sure this is an outdoor race, lol. Oh well, it’s only 5k right? Right? Ok, 5k might be an awful long time if it’s -30!

Still, this is a great way for me to start the new year off, especially given my triathlon in the summer goal. My new treadmill arrives next week or so and I will have all the motivation I need to actually use the thing. I’ve been doing quite well on my fitness goals so far, although I didn’t work out today. Yesterday I biked 6km on my indoor trainer setup and Monday I ran AND swam at the gym. Tomorrow I think I’ll hit the gym again.

2011 is going to be amazing!
