Hello! I ran in a 5K race today. It was for AIDS and LGBT charities and it was extra-festive this year because World Pride is here this year.
I did it in 39:29, and I was working hard! I'm not happy with my time. I've been running every 3 days for several weeks, plus Body Combat and Zumba, plus getting enough sleep and eating mostly well. I took a few walking breaks but fewer than usual. So why isn't my time improving? I guess I'm running for longer intervals, but slower, but it still doesn't make mathematical sense. Maybe I won't be ready to do a half marathon in the fall if this flat 5K have me so much grief.
It was a nice enough race, though it was hot and there wasn't much shade on the course.
