Breaking news...

I just signed up for another 5K! It's called Sherry's Run, and it is in honor of cancer victims and survivors. I will participate in honor of my father, who died of cancer in 2005. I will also do it in support of a teacher here at my school who is battling cancer right now. The 5K walk/run is on September 12, so I have about a month to prepare. I really want to run/walk this one. The last one I only walked it, and met my goal of finishing in less than an hour. This time I think I'm gonna make my goal 40 minutes.

SOOOO... this means I have to start getting on that dread-mill. I figure that instead of 45 minutes on the elliptical and 15 on the stationary bike, I will do 30 minutes on the treadmill, 30 minutes on the elliptical. During my treadmill time I will try to run a little - well, as much as I can. I still have bad knees, and I'm still very heavy, so I'm not going to over-do it. I just want to step up my game from the last 5K. That one was at the beginning of April, and I've came a long way since then.

I might even do some of those couch to 5K podcasts...

  5. Congratulations on signing up for a 5k! It sounds like a great cause too.

  6. Good goal and good plan! What saved (is saving) my knees when jogging on the treadmill and the street is to be SURE to strike heel-first when jogging....not toe first! Use your whole foot for each step, and it helps with the strain on knees and shins...a lot!! YOU CAN DO IT!! WOO HOO! You have inspired me to search for some 5k runs near me....!
