ok i guess i'll kick things off here. i did a trial run of the 5K last night (my first ever). I was considering squeezing the real thing in today following an emergency cupcake buy, but I did something funny to my leg, so my trial time stands. And actually, I'm quite pleased, if I may say so myself.

Exactly 50 minutes!

I learned a lot today:

I can run better with a 0% incline
I need better shoes
Feeling like your boobs are going to snap off isn't fun. Better support for a better run!
Pee before you run because peeing in your pants probably isn't very sexy
I can run in front of people. They don't care!!!
I don't fit into my pants anymore. If I want to wear them I'll need suspenders.

It was a good run!

Great job ladies...

Rain here all night but clearing now so Angie wants to wait until she gets home from bell choir practice at church before we head out.

#1 Got it done on the treadmill today -- too cold outside--- but I didn't get it all done at once because some people stopped to look at the house so I'm not even sure of what my time was...

Great job everyone!!

I hadn't run in over a week cause I was sick, and I lose running confidence quickly. I was worried I wouldn't be able to go 5K. I put on my shoes and decided I would run 2 miles no matter what. Felt great! Went a little over 3 miles in 32 minutes. A gorgeous day, I felt strong, and it was fun. So good to get back out there!

I completed mine this afternoon, outside even :) It was so nice to get out to exercise again! I'm back to walking because apparently the doctors were right about not running. Oops

Awesome job by everyone!

53:29 here. I'm quite impressed with myself because I'm still very sore from the workout my trainer put me through 2 days ago - I wasn't sure I'd be able to walk 5k at the start!

OK so the purpose of these 5K's is to get out and get moving right? :)

We are all different people and at different places in our lives.

We run ~ we walk ~ we jog ~ we stroll ~ we wheel

We struggle

We set goals

We accomplish some

We fail at others

We keep moving forward :)

Today Angie and I intended to take the dogs on a brisk 5K....we waited for the rain to clear. About .25 into our walk Angie's hip joint popped out. She has been having issues with it for a couple of months. We took it easy....hip popped back into place about the 2.5 mark and all is well.

It was a very nice cool day with the sun shining in the sky and we could see snow on the local mountains. Gorgeous. Heavy rain coming tomorrow.

Our time ~ A great time together and with our dogs! :) (61 minutes)

I completed my I HEART 5k in 45 mins. I walked slowly for the first 10 mins to warm-up and get motivated. And then I ran the last 35 mins. :carrot:

It felt really good to see that I can still run after so many months of slacking off! Makes me wonder why I ever stopped. :dizzy:

Great job ladies!

#69 checking in with bad news. :( Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to complete my 5K. I'm having knee problems, so no running for the moment and I really need to give my knee a break, so I've decided to take today off from exercise--which means I can't even patch a 5K together on the elliptical. I did swim yesterday, but I'm a slow swimmer so the most I could get in before I ran out of time was 2.7 km (which took me an hour and 15 min).

I did probably run a 5K last Tuesday, but I was expecting to be able to run today (Sunday), so I didn't keep track. I'll be doing spin class and elliptical next Tuesday; between the two, that also probably gets me to a 5K, but the spin bikes don't track mileage, so there's no way to know for sure. I'll probably only do 1.5 miles on the elliptical.

But I'll be back for the next 3FC 5K. Even if I still can't run, if I have some time plan I'll be able to patch one together with swimming and the elliptical.

I did a 5k on Thursday by jogging around and around my living room, dining room and kitchen. I have only an estimate but I jogged for 1 hour and 10 minutes so I'm sure I got in a 5k. Then I biked 10k on my stationary bike. That took me 40 minutes. I was actually hoping to do it again today but life got in the way.

# 13 reporting.

I don't have very good news myself, for the last two or three weeks I had this unexplained pain in my left heel (I think it may have been caused by me starting to wear high [albeit comfortable] heels all of a sudden - the pain is on and off. Nevertheless, I ran 2 miles on Friday, did an hour of Zumba yesterday and ran 3.8 miles today on treadmill. In hindsight, it was not a good idea because it really aggravated the heel and I can barely put weight on my left foot. Grrrr. I was hoping to run tomorrow again as it is a holiday here although I work in the afternoon.
Well, I did what I could!

Another thing that keeps our gals at the top!!

You ladies are great!

I don't remember my number... but I did make my BF do the 5K with me.

Unfortunately he is from Montana and coming to the south decided he only needed to bring flip-flops, so we walked except for a minute or so where he ran and then ended up making fun of me (not really on purpose) for not being able to keep up.
