I did it: last night I ran my very first five kilometers non stop. (exept for one short short stop as I had to talk to an old lady passing by and encouraging me :-) )
Felt really good, had Flavie with me who seemed to enjoy it and let her little legs fly. Took us about 35 minutes which I think is not too bad considering how little I ran lately.
Now that I know that I can do it I can start varying speed and then go up in time/distance. But I think I will continue running in the fields where I don't know any distances but running between 30 and 45 minutes non stop will be ok. Then inbetween shorter but faster as well as runs with intervals of slow and fast running.

  2. Thank you! But that's just what I thought a few weeks ago - and found out that needed a goal!

  3. Congrats to you!!! Also, Happy Birthday, if I remember correctly :)

  4. did you run another race today? (sunday)? I hope it went well!!!
    I made it through mine with a time of about 36 minutes and 17 or 18 seconds. I'm pretty happy overall since I essentially trained for three weeks.
    GO US! :)

  5. Congrats Tina!
    Just drink plenty of fluids the day before and the day of the "run". It really makes a big difference! Keep up the good work!
