Ahem, guess I should explain. It's actually not a "real" one but a virtual one. Katie at Runs for Cookies is planning on hosting a Virtual 5k on her birthday, January 25th! And by my calculations I should have finished Week 9 of C25K the week before. Soooo, there it is. While it's not an official one, I'm still pretty excited about it! After I get past Christmas, I will start mapping out and planning some actual 5Ks. I want to do this!
One kinda major thing that kinda gives me anxiety about running a real 5K is my shyness. I'm just not good around people I don't know and especially in large crowds. I really wish I could find a running buddy that is local so at least I could have someone to talk to at the races. And honestly, I am SO much better than I used to be but I will never be one of those types of people who go up to strangers and introduce myself. But I think my determination to actually do a 5K may put me out of my comfort zone anyway so who knows what will happen between now and next year. I hope my insecurities don't come up and bite me in the butt.
Oh well, Week 4 Day 2 tonight and possibly some elliptical time in. The scale hasn't moved much since last Wednesday so I'm hoping to give me a little bump so I can show a loss tomorrow.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
