First outdoor run of spring

Monday, April 11, 2011

Warm weather, yay!! I woke up and went for a run this morning. I wanted to start training for an 8K I would like to run this summer. I decided to try for 8K (which I incorrectly estimated to be 5 miles) this morning and see how my time was, then work up from that.

I started out by running my best 5K ever, 26.45! Very proud! Then went on to finish all 5 miles in 45.53, which is pretty good, for a first attempt, I think. The hardest part was running home from the track afterwards! I had to though, I promised to drive my husband to work and get him there on time.

    Sounds great! I have never been a runner, ever ever ever, but the warm weather here in Chicago inspired even me to get outside and get moving. I just did sort of a speed walk/jog thing for fifteen minutes, but it still felt great. Yay for the weather, and good for you!
