Reluctant runner ramblings

The Boyf informed me yesterday that he has put our names down to do a 10km run for charity on Tuesday......

Me: I got your e-mail about the run. Why does it say plus one next to your name?
The Boyf: Oh, I put your name down to do it too.
Me: haha. Good one, honey. So who's really running with you?
The Boyf: You are . Don't worry though its more of a walk than a run. It will probably be alot of fun.
Me: Then why does it say "run" on poster? Its misleading. The word "walk" would really make me think happier thoughts.
The Boyf: *laughs* we can walk most of it if you like
Me: ummm....or maybe I can just meet you at finish line?

I'm a bit concerned, Ive never done one of these things before. Tonight I better go for a jog to see just how unfit I am (i wonder if i will even make it 2 blocks?). Who knows maybe it will turn out to be fun and then I can take 10km runs off my list of "things to never ever do" *grins* . wish me luck.

  1. 10km is not too bad and you can walk if you're struggling to keep up - my boyfriend would ZOOM off so I'd probably walk. Take in the scenery and enjoy the day, then it won't be too bad :)
    Good luck

  2. There's a run happening on Sunday? I know how you feel. My friends are trying to drag me hiking tonight. All I want to do is watch more episodes of The Wire.

  9. for this sunday??? this certainly does not give you a lot of time to train! hope you have a nice walk :)

  10. YOu may be surprised. I have quite a few people on my circle who are able to just sommer run 10km without training. (they cant walk for a week after but that is beside the point right now!)

    I am not a distance runner - I dont have great endurance but I have not found many people who can beat me in a sprint! ;-)

    This may be a good thing to spark your inner gym bunny - whatever happens - jsut enjoy the fresh air and your healthy body!

  12. Good thing you saw it...wonder when he was going to fill you in on the surprise?

    Have a good run...er, walk!

  13. Don't worry lady! Take turns running when you can, and walking when you feel too tired, with only one goal in mind: Reach The Finish. You will feel insanely good about your participation!

  14. I did a 5km charity "run" earlier this year....there were so many participants that we were shuffling along most of the time, forget even walking!
    Good luck....it'll be fun :-)

  15. Wow, good luck! I'm sure you'll manage, and it is one of those things that everyone should do at least once (and i never ever will, hence the preachiness). Enjoy the pre-run run!

  16. You will enjoy the run/walk.
    It will be exhilarating and will probably become a yearly participation for you.
    Be sure to wear supportive running/walking shoes.
    (So unlike me to have a "Mom" moment.)
    Have fun!

  17. Good luck! Stay behind the boyf and focus on his butt the whole time and it'll go by faster. ; )

  18. Stress not! I did one the other...I nearly said day, but it was more like month...And it was actually a lot of fun! I came 316th! And you really don't have to do all that much running...

  21. Note: I made a mistake with my original post and said the run is on Sunday - its actually on Tuesday.

  22. Your boyfriend's brazenness rocks! I'm sure you'll do fine - just don't start out too quickly.
