So I have never been a runner, you could say I'm allergic to it. I'm asthmatic and overweight, not the right mix for running. Today I got invited to do a different kind of triathlon, yoga/meditation/5K. Yoga is one of my goals for the year & while I can do it meditation is something I have been wanting to get better at so 2/3's of this triathlon is something I can really get into, but the running scares the crap out of me!!!!

So I hit maybe on the invite and started thinking, do I really want to try this? Turns out that it's a yes. Maybe I'm crazy and I'm not sure I can run a 5K even with 7 months but I really want to do this. Motivation to get healthier and work on my goals.

So starting today I'm training for a triathlon. Thinking I may try to blog/journal/write about this. (Another one of my goals)

Possible names:
A non-runners journey to a 5K
My path to yoga & a 5K

Either way my first entry:

4/6 - today I did 30 minutes of introduction yoga, walked for 20 minutes with some very very light and awkward jogging and did a 7 minute work out I have been trying to do daily for a few days now. Meditation up next.

Wish me luck!

I am totally with you on this and I know you can do it! Remember the 5K part can be a mix of walking and running, so no matter what, you can do this!

I love the idea of this triathalon and rsvp'd yes, but then Pandie and I figured out its the same weekend as our fall seership module. Waaah! But lets train together anyway--I love that idea! And I love that you are going to blog about it.

Awe, I guess if you have to miss it, Seership is definitely a great reason ;)

Yes please let's train together. Motivation thru great friends, plus in a way it will be like you being there!!!
