Virtual 5K completed!

Friday, November 02, 2012

This morning I completed the Trick-or-Treat Trot Virtual 5K race. I used the odometer on my car to map out the route and my lovely Timex watch to measure my time - 48 minutes! emoticon That is no where near the fastest times posted, but it is certainly much better than I could have done 2 months ago!! emoticon

When I signed up originally I had planned to do a walk/run but in the course of the "training" for the race, I realized that I can't walk/jog as fast as I can walk, so I timed myself walking this morning. It seems funny to me that this is the case - isn't the point of running to move faster? It certainly wears me out more than the fast walking does! emoticon Eventually I hope to build up enough endurance to jog/run the entire 5K, but I am still far from that!!

    How awesome! I know, sometimes, when I jog, I just feel like I'm slower than when I walk. I don't know what gives about that...maybe jogging is just harder on the body so we slow down? But awesome time! You rock!
