09/25/11 - 1st 5k training time - 58 minutes
I finally started training for the 5K today! My husband and I mapped it out on the computer. We did a mile in a loop that would take me back to the house and I downloaded Runningmate software to my iPhone so I would have a way of tracking the time and miles.
First, I don't know why I thought that this would be fairly easy! Just because I normally do 2 hours of cardio a day, I thought that walking 3.1 miles would be no problem! I was sooo wrong!
Second, I picked a day to walk when the temperature is the highest it's been all week! That was not smart, but it ought to make tomorrow easier.
I walked the 3.1 miles in 58 minutes. For the first mile, I had my 6 year old daughter with me. Before we had done a quarter mile, she was ready for me to carry her, which is strange because she's the one who has been pushing me to walk. I think it was just too hot today. I talked her through the first mile and got her back to the house, then finished the last two myself.
