Counting all the walking around the campground with scouts over the weekend and a good workout today, I made it ito 500.


500 Minutes?

Sunday, April 29, 2012

I realized that I'm within 80 minutes of hitting 500 fitness minutes for the month. Two days left in April.

This may be all the motivation I need to get out and take a couple lovely walks or make sure I get in a good training run tomorrow.

How Cool Is This

Saturday, April 28, 2012

We did a 5k this morning.

Actually had a great time doing it. OK, wasn't so great on the uphill stretches, but I found a lot of grit that I wasn't sure I had. I didn't run it all, but I kept moving and kept cycling back into runs as often as I could.

I wasn't last and wasn't dodging the pick up golf cart trailing the slow folks. Now I've got a time to beat and we're looking for the next race.

Two More Days

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Went out to the park again this morning. This time I did a more solid run/walk interval set. I got through about half of the course. The goal was to get one last run in and to be familiar with the route.

Plus, I'd been spending a lot of time in the past weeks running on the treadmill. It just seemed more doable, between being sick and having high local pollen counts. So running outside was a pretty big deal.

One son ran with me and another one ran his own pace and covered almost all of the course. We pick up race packets tomorrow.


Only a Handful of Days

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I only have a few days until my first 5k. I'm not at all prepared to run the whole thing. But I'm really glad not to be injured and skipping it, as happened in the fall.

I went out this afternoon and walked about half of the course so I would know what it looks like. One of my pet peeves about running has always been not knowing how to pace myself. This way I'll have an idea how far along I am.

And it will be lovely. The rain has knocked the pollen count way down. The leaves are big and green. It smells like spring.

I'm looking forward to this little victory.
