A couple of weeks ago, just after my second 5k race, I was toying with the idea of signing up for a 5 mile race in January. That’s 8k…a distance I have never run nor tried to run. I asked around on twitter and I was told it’s doable, I would just have to work on my distance for the 6 weeks leading up to the race. Essentially, I would have to add 500m to my run each week.
Believe me, I was seriously, truly, really, honestly considering it. My only concern was, am I trying to do too much, too soon? I’ve only just been able to run 5k, are my expectations just a wee bit high maybe? As I was considering it I was wavering more towards actually doing it, than not.
