Oh boy. So a couple months ago I started the Couch to 5k program, determined to run a 5k once and for all (call me crazy, but I've always wanted to run one).
I was going strong thanks to my fantastic running buddy (thank you Kristen). I was even going on my own on days when she wasn't able to. I was committed.
You'll notice I'm using the past tense.
So I was doing so great with my training and then the last couple of weeks happened. Between a new calling, helping plan the ward trunk or treat, Halloween costumes, Nathan studying and taking his licensure exam etc., I totally dropped the ball on my training.
My 5k is on Saturday. As in this Saturday.
The furthest I've run is 2.5 miles....
Needless to say I'm a little nervous, but I am committed to finishing the race even if I have to walk part of it (which would be a bummer).
But if that happens I'll just remind myself that finishing the race is better than finishing it perfectly.
Wish me luck!
