Emily (broncogirl) wrote in intermediate_5k,


I am new to this community. I finished the couch to 5K and have run 2 5K's in the last month. I finished yesterday in 33:31 (best time yet). I haven't looked into the intermediate 5K on coolrunning, but I will today. I hope to gain and give lots of support to fellow runners!

I started the couch program in July and ran my first 5K in October (2 weeks before Halloween). I finished 34:38 and won 3rd in my age category (29 years). I am hoping to eventually get to 30:00 for a 5K before I start 10K training. I have severe tendonitis in my right leg, but can't imagine stopping long enough for it to heal. I have never run a mile in my life until startng the couch program and hope I can continue running for a long time to come!

Congratulations on finishing the couch to 5k program! And on running two 5k races already! Awesome! And it looks like you're making really good times, too!

Background on myself: I started the C25k program on 9/9/07, and after the end of week 4 (I think) I decided to just start RUNNING. I run about 3 miles 4 or 5 days a week. My first 5k race is coming up on Sunday. My time isn't great, but I'm hoping the Intermediate 5k will help improve that.

So after I get through this week of training for the race, I'm going to jump into the intermediate 5k program (starting 11/12).

My next goal is a 1/2 marathon in May '08, and I'm considering a full marathon in October '08.

So again, welcome, good luck, and keep us posted on your progress!
