I'm an athletic person, been a gym rat since I was 14, played multiple sports, etc.
I'm also very competive and self-critical when it comes to performance. For the longest time, I've wanted to run in a race, but I kept putting it off because of the fear of not completing a race in a good time.
I finally signed myself up for a Turkey Trot 5K with my dog. There's no turning back.
I'm extremely nervous. I haven't really done long distance running, I'd do lot of short sprints, weight training, P90X, aerobics, etc. I started the C25K and I'm already in my third week. But the race is only 4 weeks away and I don't see how I can cram the C25K training program in time for the race.For those who have used the C25K, do you have suggestions???? Do I skip a week in the training program? Do I cram it to 5 times a week instead of 3 times a week?
Any other advice? I want to do well in the race. I want to remember my first race as an awesome thing instead of , "well that sucked, I walked a lot and was very slow".
