Running Advice Needed!
After this week I will have only 9 runs left in my Zombies Run! 5k Training, finishing aroung the 29th September. By then I should be able to run continuously for 5k, though I might still be veeery slow. I’m interested in signing up for a 5k races just to keep me motivated to carry on running during autumn and winter after I have finished the 5k trainer, and there is a few I could choose from on the 13th October, but am wondering whether it would even be worth it, as I obviously would not be doing it to show off how fast I am, and whether I am going to face a huge amount of embarrassment for obviously coming last. Should I keep training and sign up for a race in November/December instead? Or should I just fucking do it and balls to what anyone else might think??
There is nothing more motivating than a race. Nothing.
I just did a 5K (my first) last Sunday and I, too, was very slow compared to most. But it’s not about being the first or being the last. It’s about finishing it. It’s about proving to yourself that you can do it.
So I say, go for it. Sign up and do it.
