On my own, it was difficult to figure out exactly how hard to push myself and how fast to add time/distance to my running. Another mom mentioned that last fall she used the Couch to 5k method and was running the 5k distance by the end of the training period. After searching for one online, I found a method I liked here.
After finding a good plan, I searched for local 5k runs. I didn't find quite as many options as I hoped to find, but the Run Like a Fool 5k looks pretty good to me. It is on Saturday, April 2, 2011. That only leaves me about 6 weeks to train. So far in my
Plan in place, date set, and ready to accomplish the first half of this goal! Now, who wants to run the Run Like a Fool 5k with me?
