A big thanks! (Read 776 times)


    Just wanted to say thank you to everyone on this board who recommended slowing down my pace (I was the wha wah, my running is not improving girl from a month back). I slowed down my pace and went from 5 minute maximum of running at a time, to yesterday running a 5K in just over 40 minutes. No walking. My low back is a little tight, but I don't even have shin splints! Next stop, 10K!! Thanks for all of your tips and advice and admonishments to keep at it. It worked.

        Three half marathons later, I got a number. Half Fanatic #9292. :)

          That's awesome!  Keep up the good work!Big grin

            I used to think I could run about 2-3 miles at a time.  Then Knifey said, "Slow down."  It worked.  Extended my m/m pace about 2-3 minutes and gradually built speed from there.  Awesome work!!  Big grin

            So bittersweet,
            This tragedy
            Won't ask for absolution;
            This melody,
            Inside of me,
            Still searches for solution.
            A twist of faith,
            A change of heart
            Cures my infatuation.
            A broken heart, 
            Provides the spark
            For my determination.

              Well done ... the first 5k is always sweet !!!

              I dont sweat. I ooze liquid awesome.
