I am a runner


Wednesday, October 26, 2011

I am into week three of my training for my second 10k.I am feeling sore today but it is a good kind of sore and I think I am going to loving my sleep tonight.I have had problems with sleep apnea in the past and I am scared of it happening again. At least that is one motivation for exercise.Training is hard especially in the first weeks and although I am a bit slow , I can feel that I am no longer having side pains and there is no lactic acid building in my calves like when I started.

I have scheduled in some Saturday 5ks and 10ks races for the coming weeks and it would give me greater incentive to keep working on my form and who knows I might be talking about a half marathon in a year or so to come.

I also bought a pedometer last Saturday and its funny how I am more inclined to move more in order to record more distance on it.for the past 3 days days I have averaged 13000 steps a day and covered an average distance of about 6 to 7 km per day.Dont know that is in terms of miles. Tomorrow I will be stuck in meetings so there wont be any of the trotting about in the office building.

Goodnight to you all Sparkers.It is 8:20pm right now in South Africa.
