Last year was the year in which participated more often in street racing. Began with GRAAC, then came the Marathon Sugarloaf, the M5K and finally the Disney Magic Run I just not relying here on the blog but that was a run super cool and magical as everything Disney.
Adding all these races I put 35 km on the account ... it underneath, not counting what I did on the treadmill and tals.
I must confess that I just addicting, and never thought that was possible because to be honest I did not like running. When I joined the gym I thought I was going to die when increasing the speed on the treadmill and the only incentive to my persistence was the idea that I was going to run to lose more fat than any other activity.
Coincidentally the same time I tried to improve my performance on the mat entered a new teacher at the academy proposing to form a class race.
I decided to try it once to see how the lesson was. The class was cool, the first class until I could run more or less returned a second time, a third, then a fourth time, I confess I always thought about quitting, but something made me try again and again.
Then came my first road race: the Relay Marathon Bread Açúca r, 5K would take turns with the staff.
If I say that my first road race was the best feeling in the world I'll be lying. Running my first 5K was pretty cool, but it was hard and I still was not super conditioned. I had to wake up super early and back home was both my tiredness that O_o almost fell asleep at the wheel.
But the feeling of completing a challenge makes you proud and that is one reason that leads you to want to run another, and another and another.
Well, with the passage of time and increasing evidence completed a goal I have stipulated that want to go farther and farther. No matter how long I take to do this, or what intensity races I do each year, but the idea is to always exceed my limits and challenge my body. Run half marathon is within this objective but rather it would be interesting to run a test of 15 or 16K, to see if I can take the hit.
Well then came the opportunity to enroll in the Mizuno 10 Miles (which gives approximately 16 km) and it will roll on Joquei Club on April 21 (just missing).
To complete the animation called my husband to go with me ... and he said yes! (It will run 2.5 Miles)
My husband is not a fan of racing. He has not yet found the meaning to wake up early to go running and then come home, but he is struggling and will train with me every Sunday at some park near our house. I find this very cute.
Last Sunday I was not so into it and he ended up encouraging me.
I've been training twice a week, Friday and Sunday. I can not do the training on Sunday as well as I wanted because I always run with Ricardo and do not think it's cool to leave him alone and run. At least half of the workout I think it important to monitor.
But it has been a different experience and I confess that my Sundays have been more useful.
I do not know if I can keep this pace after the race, but I'll try. Running is not an easy activity, not the most pleasant at first, but once you get taste is hard to kick.
And my tip is to give a chance for the race. Not for rushing like crazy and end up hurting yourself, but go slowly, take part in a street race, feel the vibration.
I'm sure that sooner or later will end up liking (as I ended up).
Then come here to tell me how was the experience and Ricardo in the first race of his street.
