I’m terribly behind on posting. Between Thanksgiving, my meltdown over that interview, and AMIL moving in tomorrow things have been kind of crazy. I’ve started my 10k training and the recap of that first workout will be the subject of my next post.
Well I did it. I did a full 5k.
I haven’t run a race (although I am registered for the Expedition Everest Challenge in May, and hopefully in the next week or so I’ll be registered for the race is Key West I want to do), but I did a 5k. I wish I could say I ran the whole thing, but I cant.
Holy Crap was it hot and humid that night! Despite having the chilly 50-60 degree days earlier in the week that night it was 80 degrees with high humidity.
I did make it a full 1.5 miles before I needed a walk break. I think I ended up walking about 1/4 of the course, but running 3/4 of a 5k is nothing to scoff at! I couldn’t even do that 9 weeks earlier! My baseline 5k was 99% walking and it took me just under an hour to do. That night I did the 5k in 41 minutes!
I’m so proud of myself. C25K wasn’t easy but it was rewarding! And now I can say I’m a graduate!
