5 of my girlfriends and I (all fellow mothers) have decided to do our first 5K on October 1st. I have always wanted to be a "real" runner and do marathons and this is my first real step towards that goal. Yay! I used to run before I got pregnant both times, but only ran a mile a day. So this will be a challenge for me I am so thrilled about it.
I have been back to jogging about a mile 4 days a week so I thought week 1 wouldn't be *too* hard for me. I was wrong...It was tough. Plus, even at 8 AM here in AL it is 90 degrees. Sheesh. But I feel good now
Question: Anyone done Couch to 5K or currently doing it? Any words of advice? TIA!
Also, I made the mistake of not pulling my ankle socks up past the tops of my tennis shoes and got a massive blister on my achille's. OUCH! What can I do to make sure it doesn't keep me from running for the next little while?
