My First 5k

April 29th 2017 I ran my first 5k. Well I didn’t run the entire time I ran and walked. I would run as much as I could then walk 1 minute and towards the end I would run 1 minute and walk 1 minute. This was at Columbus Capp city half marathon.

My time was 46:58 not great by any means but its a start. I didn’t train for this race I only decided that Monday to run it. I am not a runner and have not ran this much since I was in high school over 25 years ago. I never thought I would be able to run this much. I have recently lost about 45 lbs and been eating a Keto diet.

My next goal is to run a 5k with out walking at all. I am continuing to train for this by using the C25k app starting in week 3. I also am continuing to lift weights witb the 5×5 program. I dont lift heavy but enough to keep toning my muscles
