- Wedding: June 2011
Have you ever known those girls to decide on a huge fitness goal before the wedding? They plaster their goal all over facebook and then cop-out last minute? I know TONS and I swore up and down I would not be one. I don’t know what was wrong with me, but a few months ago I signed up to do a 10K race the weekend before we leave for our wedding!! Am I crazy? YES! Am I nervous as heck because it is this weekend? YES!
I desperately do not want to be another one of those girls that gives up because they have too much wedding stuff to do, but right now I’m finding it hard to commit a whole morning to this race when there is so much more I should be doing! I guess I’m just looking for a little encouragement and assurance 🙂
I have been training as much as I can, but I’ll admit I haven’t done as much as I hoped. I go for at least 1-2 runs a week, but the furthest I have ever run is 6km. I know when you train for a marathon you should never run more than half because it will make you never want to run the marathon! Does the same rule apply for 10K races? Haha Probably not since it is such a short distance, but here is hoping!!
Has anyone else prepared to run a 10K race, and if so what was the furthest you ran before the big day? I am very much not in shape, and am not built for running! I go super slow, but I still plod along without stopping to walk.
I know I could always walk the last 4km, but I feel like that would be cheating, and I know my FI would be super disappointed as he has been so encouraging and wonderful supporting my crazy decision to run this race!
So bees … what do you think? Should I? Shouldn’t I? Can I even complete the race!? AHHH
