5k Highs and Lows
Monday, September 17, 2012
On Sunday, I did my 5k for Race To End Childhood Obesity. This didn't go as well as I planned it. I had plan to run the entire course, but that didn't happen. I trained several days a week running 3 miles in my neighborhood. However, this course was a Cross Country Terrain. Well, I never train for that surface. I was winded and actually struggled to complete the course. Twice I almost just threw in the towel and say forget. Then it was three people that had passed my sister and I. The lady turned around after a few minutes and said, "I was last last year ". I told my sister I didn't like her comment and I'm not going to be last, well I just couldn't recovery from the heat and humidity and I did come in last. I usually fine races that is early in the mornings. This one started a noon. I've always been a morning person when it comes to exercising, and I tend to struggle with later workouts. Well, I guess I'm going to have to change that and really work on it. So, yes I'm still bum this morning about it. Well the one thing good that came out of it is that I shaved 4 minutes off my time. I have another 5k next month for Breast Cancer. I have no doubt that I will not do well, because I have walked, jogged, and biked on this trail. I will start training on the trail tomorrow and recover from Sunday's disappointment. At the end of ceremony they had announced that they had someone come from very far distance to participate in the event and mention the county in which I live. Thanks for your support. Keep It Moving! To Keep On Losing!
