:patrick: SAINT PATRICK'S DAY 5K :kissluck:

I know I am pushing you all a little hard right now....and I feel real bad about it.....:lol3:

But too bad - so sad :(

:goldpot: SAINT PATRICK'S DAY :cupgold: is almost a month away. You have plenty of time to get out and train....

and besides my dear wife ANGIE is half IRISH and I know I will need to get a few extra miles completed to burn off some of those corned beef and :broc: cabbage :broc: calories I will consume with our tradional meal on the 17th of MARCH

and YES I know that is a jumpin' broccoli above but it was green...

and besides our family tradition of corned beef and :broc: cabbage :broc: only gets served about every other year anyway....

rules and traditions are made to be broken! :)

And that is why we are not waiting for :easter2: EASTER to get our :bunny: little bunny tails movin' again :bunny2:

If you have never participated in one of our 3FC 5K's here are the rules...

ALL ARE WELCOME!

You may do 3.1 miles anyway you want....run ~ walk ~ jog ~ bike ~ mall shop it ~ treadmill ~ swim ~ wheelchair ~ ANYWAY YOU WANT!

WHY? :irish:

because the purpose of all this nonsense is to get up and get movin'!

So pick your numbers and get movin'! :luck2you:

If you have any questions just ask....the TEAM will answer them for you....:luck2you: GOOD LUCK!

I've been running on the treadmill lately but hesitated joining the last challenge. Since I ran my personal best distance the other day, I should probably "man up" (woman up? chick up?) and join! I hope my time will be outside, but we'll see if the weather cooperates.

Any number will do. Thanks, EZMONEY!

I've been planning to run a 10K on St Paddy's day and have been training for it for more than a month. I can't find a race to run here on that date, so I'll do this one with you guys, just a longer distance!

#9 reporting a 47-minute speed walk 5k today to get started w/ training.

It occurred to me that ever since I stopped running (hurt my knee) I have been saying I was going to start again... I think it's about time. =) Sooner or later I gotta stop saying it and DO it!

Hi Gary! I'm in. I run 5Ks on a treadmill 3 times a week. I forgot to put up my 5K time for Valentines Day (and don't want to bump the thread), which I did on a treadmill two Saturday's ago. But it was predictably, 33 minutes 18 seconds! HA HA!

If I can't get outside in March, I'll do it on the treadmill again and try to work up to 5.8 MPH! And I'll let you know what my time is.

All I want to do is run outside! Why is this winter SOOOOO awful.

My training update...
Monday was an absolutley gorgeous day in Denver, CO. So, I decided that I would ride my bike up the Cherry Creek Trail and make the park our halfway stop so my three year old could play (have a trailer on the back for him). It is about 4 miles to the park and let me tell you I was really pushing myself. I was trying to not beat myself up too bad because I am pulling about 70lbs behind me and I had already done a good cardio workout that morning.
We had our rest at the park and were getting ready to head home, as I pulled the bike away from the fence it felt like it was hung up on something. OH! the brake! I rode 4 miles with the break on the trailer!!! Needless to say, it was a very good workout but I had to take a couple of days off because everything hurt! Training begins again tomorrow!:D

Alright Gary, this was a tough one to join. I am going on Vacation that week, but I will run 5k on Saturday the 14th. I will also try to use the fitness center in the Hotel, but one never knows how good they are. I will be at Disneyland so I am sure that I will be getting in my 5k walking anyway.

midwife

Wow, Buckeye!!!

EZMONEY

Hope you get outside NODS...say hi to my step-d if you see her in the city.

Great work-out BUCKEYE!....you could be on to something!

BABY CATCHER thanks for the support!

JENI when you get to Disneyland look about 60 miles south and you will see me wave!

SHANNON you are always welcome even if you don't post your results! It isn't about me...it's about you!!

I did 4 miles in 40 minutes today, which puts my current 5K at 30 minutes. Not sure if I will be shaving any time off my 5K times since I'm training for 10K right now.

Happy Apple
03-01-2009, 03:28 PM
How do you all feel about late arrivals? :)

You all sound like a great group and the 5k really got my interest. I have a question, though: do I have to do the 5K all at once, or can I take a break here and there? I'm just a bit out of shape ;), but I really want to join in. I don't care about my time, I just care about finishing, lol!

Gimme a number and I'm ready to go - I've got a date with a treadmill!

EZMONEY
03-01-2009, 04:38 PM
RIVER....great job on the 10K training!

HAPPY APPLE...WELCOME! You may do the 5K in as many trips as you need. Starting is the most important part about our 5K's. You are in at #25...good luck!

wow, everyone's injured! I hope you all heal soon! =)

I'm being LAZY... I mean, I'm still walking but my plans to incorporate jogging/running are not working out too well. (and when I say "not working out," I mean, I'm just not doing it).

im gonna be doing this one outdoors since i have a garmin now:carrot:. i'm gonna try and find a flatter route for the 5k lol

retiredone
03-10-2009, 11:56 AM
I've been debating whether to do this one or leave it alone for a while. My knees are not good so I've not run since the Valentine 5k. But I will do this: I'll do a 15k on my exercise bike to make up for not running as I usually do. If the weather is fine I might be able to walk a 5k but no promises on that one. So am I in???

Forgot to mention that the next empty number is good with me. Don't know where I'll be on the 17th as we are expecting our first grandchild on the 19th and my FIL is in hospital dying and there could be a funeral anytime now. So if you don't hear from me you'll know circumstances got in the way.

EZMONEY

Great time for a 5KWD (With Dogs), EZ! I always feel guilty counting walks with mine as "exercise" because we stop so much - for all the same reasons you did, plus other dogs who need to be greeted and Interesting Smells that must be investigated.

Can I post my time? I ran 5K yesterday, for the first time in a while (I've been sick, and have been trying to get rid of the congestion in my lungs). But I finally ran 5K. Yay! On the treadmill, 2% incline: 40 min, 2 seconds. :D I am nothing if not precise. ;)

mrsaugie
03-15-2009, 07:35 PM
well here are my results thus far yesterday and today both times are around 40 min. on the eliptical yes i could have gone for a walk outside to day it was beautiful out but i stayed inside we still have alot of snow that needs to melt and that means alot of ice this time of year.

river
03-16-2009, 07:33 AM
I did my 10K yesterday outside, 1:06. The first 5K took 33 minutes so I kept a pretty steady pace overall. I should be able to do the 5K tomorrow in a faster time, I'm going to shoot for under 30:00 which would be easier on the treadmill than outside. That all depends on the weather.

What time of day is everyone doing their run?

Hi, is it too late to join the St. Patrick's Day 5k? or should I wait to sign up for Easter 5k. I think this time I can do it.

Thanks :)

Hi guys! I'm ready for the 5K this time! I did 5.5, miles in 1:06 the last time I was out, so I think I should be able to do the 5k in around 36 minutes. I'll post updates tomorrow! Hope it doesn't rain!

I did my 5k in 42 min. I actually jogged most of it. I am aiming to get under 40 min when I do a 5k in June.
