According to my newly refreshed late spring plan, I jog a 5k twice per week--Wednesdays and Saturdays. Today I walked the first 5 min and then jog the rest of the way. It took me a total of 35 minutes which isn't bad given the fact that I've never jogged/ran in my life before now and the fact that my last attempt at this particular route took me 1 minute longer. But still, I just feel so pokey out there. I tried to do some intervals today, 1 min at a little faster pace and 4 minutes of recovery. But I was so tired out by the first two that I couldn't do anymore. I did speed up over the last .2 which was fun but still I wonder, Why am i SO pokey?
Oh well, it is what it is. I have to find a way around this mentally though because it's kinda taking the joy out of jogging and I don't like that. One way or the other, I got my workout in today and I beat my last time by 1 minute!
Hope you all have a great rest of the day.
