Goal Achieved! I did my 5K race!

Saturday, October 25, 2014

My fellow staffers and I posed for a picture before the race began. I ran a 5K in 35:31 on pavement at an 11:27 mile pace for my birthday. That's pretty good, if I say so myself. That's me on the end in the bright yellow shoes.

Last Training Run

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I planned to run at least two miles this morning, but something in me said, "Keep going!" I ran 3.2 miles in 37:48 and burned 427 calories for my trouble. The next time I plan to run will be on Saturday morning for my 5K race. I am elated but a bit sweaty since the weather was warmer than expected for late October, but it's Texas, so go figure!

I Ran the Distance

Saturday, October 18, 2014

I ran 3.11 miles today in preparation for my 5K in one week. I just had to see if the legs had it in them, and they did. My time was 34:20, and I burned 435 calories. Whew! I have an ESL Supplemental certification test on Monday morning, so I think I'll save my next training run for Tuesday morning.

Making Progress - Second Run of the Week

Thursday, October 16, 2014

I ran 2.73 miles in 31:38 and burned 374 calories for my efforts. It felt good even though I'd been up a little bit later than I expected. My race is in nine days, and I pick up my packet on Saturday. Woo-hoo!!!

First Run of the Week - October 14, 2014

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I ran 2.65 miles in 31:04 this morning in 50-something degree weather. It was marvelous to return from a run without sweat coursing down my face. I think I am part-Siberian Husky after all. Ha ha ha! I've registered for my race on October 25 and plan to be in the jogging corral. The only competition is with myself to complete the course.
