Baby Steps to 5K Challenge – Failed!

Well, we started off strong but then fizzled out and failed halfway through haha.

That being said I am really proud of all the runs I did go on. For someone who has never run basically ever in their life before now this was good for me.

Sadly though, halfway through the challenge I did get sick and so was not running for a couple of weeks and then I just fell behind. Got busy and could not complete the challenge within the time limits.

The annoying thing about Samsung Health, is that I couldn’t edit the running schedule to run on different days or move the program back to say “I was sick and couldn’t run”.

Oh well.

For my first attempt, doing half the runs in the program was impressive. I thought I would have given up a lot sooner. And who knows, maybe if I hadn’t gotten sick I might have been able to do the whole thing.

Now that this is over, I don’t really have plans to keep running this year, as we head into the winter months it is starting to get darker earlier, and as a female, running in the dark by myself is definitely a scary thing. With all the news reports of spiking and other things, women anywhere at night are not safe. So I’ll be staying indoors.

That being said, next year I think I will try to get out running again. Maybe if I start earlier I’ll be able to complete the challenge, especially if the weather is better (and I don’t get sick lol).

In the meantime, I will have to find a replacement for cardio in my life, not sure what that’ll be but I’m sure I’ll find something.
