TL;DR: @JoshtheFlanagan gave me a boost 7 months ago but after an injury I quit. Today, #BuffBuddies is making me get back at it. Also, look for #30DaysOfRT and have fun with the community.
- 5K in less than 35 minutes by February 2016.
- Final weight of 115 lbs.
- Less knee pain.
- Better diet.
To explain all of this, I'll link you to this old post from 7 months ago regarding my 3rd 5K that even got Josh to wish me good luck. Well, that kinda didn't worked out.
On my forth 5K I suffered an injury that was later confirmed to be runner's worst nightmare. I have Runner's knee. Considereing my family background, chances are I'm probably building up osteoarthritis, which is a bit noticable in my fingers (it's not confirmed due to really bad health care in Mexico). Since then, I have knee pains when it's cold or when I run 5Ks (usually, tho not always). Today, I have 7 medals on my neck that makes me wish for more, but I'm also scared of pain and long-term problems. That's why, after my last 5K on October, I've kinda decided to give up on running.
I also have weight problems, but actually it's to oposite to most people. I'm 5'3'' and weight 107lbs. Which is ok to most or even a goal, but to me it's a nightmare since I am really petite and I'm also on the edge of underweight.
Buff Buddies comes in the perfect time. I'm 21, last year of Uni, choosing my future and a side of me didn't wanted to give up on running. That's why I'm joining in, to make it more than a couple of months of fun with the community but to make it a normal activity for my life.
I'm getting back to training with something alike C25K, but adjusted to myself. I'm also doing some special workouts to make my knee muscles better, that way it doesn't hurt when I run and doing some workout to gain weight on muscle and changing my diet.
Regarding #30DaysOfRT, you can find more here. I'll do journals every now and then regarding it.
Now, follow me on Instagram where I most likely post more stuff relating this new set of journeys. I'll also try to do some catch up about it every week or so since I'll probably be busy.
Support would be appreciated!
