AW: Ran my first 12k

I am so beyond proud of myself. I can't believe that I ran, ok more like jogged slowly, my first 12k today. I slacked off while training for it so I was worried. But I finished and jogged most of it in 1 hour 44 mins. between mile 3 and 4 a girl running in front of me tripped and skidded across the pavement splitting her head open. I have never seen so much blood in my life. I spotted the paramedic a good 100 yards in front of me and sprinted faster than I ever ran in my life to get them. I couldn't believe the adrenaline rush I got from that. 

I feel accomplished and I can't wait for the next race!

    That's so freaking awesome. Mind me asking what you did to train? Where did you start and how did you increase? 

  • Congrats!! Such an accomplishment!

    My training sucked. I started in February with the intention to use couch to 10k. I got up to jogging two miles then joined this crossfit-ish gym. I do that 3 nights a week and the workouts are intense so I was too sore to run on my off days when I first started there. So, I really hadn't ran more than 2 miles while training for it. My workouts helped because I've gained a lot of strength in my legs and stamina. 

    I wish I would have stuck to my training and then modified it to increase for the 12k. That would have helped me improve my time. Considering my lack of run training I did pretty well. I want to do another one now I know what my body is capable of and I will definitely train better so I can beat my time.

  • That's awesome! Ran my first 5k in January and doing a 10K by the end of the year! Keep it up, it only takes a few weeks to lose all that training you put in.
  • Awesome! I did my first 5k in October and am looking for a good 10k to do (a FLAT one!) - I am up to 5 miles at a time now....never thought I'd be able to do that  :)

    Editing to add: I might have fainted if someone split their head in front of me - glad adrenaline kicked in for you  :)
