First 10K

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Did my first 10K today. It was a really hard route with lots of hills, all up and into the wind. Just kidding about that part, but it did have lots of hills. I am glad to have said I did it, but it was very tough. I will have to train a little more seriously if I do another. I find sprint triathlons less difficult. Maybe because of less running. My bad knees are talking to me, hope they are not worse tomorrow. I guess there is a reason the ortho doc said don't do more than a 5K. I will probably have to follow that advice.

    Congrats on you raccomplishment! Sorry to hear about your knees. That's too bad. But, there are so many other things you can do... like, as you said, the 5Ks and tris! It sounds like they are just easier on your body!

    Again, CONGRATS! You DID IT!

    Way to go on your accomplishment!

    Pay attention to your knees. I was out for 2 months after walk/jogging a full marathon. The doctor indicated that I had soft tissue damage.

    You want to be able to do all that you enjoy without injury! Maybe a bit of swimming, or water exercises this week will give your knees a rest?!?
