My 5k is quickly approaching....and I'm trying to get my legs & body in shape. I'm running both on the treadmill and today it was finally warm enough for my first 'road run' I did a little over a mile and it KICKED MY A**. No really, I felt the burn in my butt, calves and knees. My lungs are also needing whipped into shape...my heart rate gets high when I'm running, but that means I'm burning calories :)
I've gained an unusual amount of weight in a short period of time. I'm weighing in at close to 115 lbs which is about a gain of close to 10 lbs in the last 3 months. I like the weight but it needs to be firmed and toned, lol. I'll keep posting my progression as I work towards the 5K.

I needed some motivation to get exercising regularly again so I registered for another 5k. May 18th is the BIG DAY so that gives me 2 months to whip my body and lungs into shape. My only goal for this race is to beat my last 5k time, which I will have to look up. lol I started running/training last week and so far so good. I'm running 3 times a week and started plyometrics a couple times a week to help build strength in my legs and butt. I'm really looking forward to completing another race, I'm no "athlete" but I do my best and that's always good enough :)
