1st 5K of the Season

Monday, March 11, 2013

Well, at least sorta... :-)

I worked late tonight so I wouldn't have to take off time for my quickie update appt w my PCP tomorrow morning. But this was the last of our "spring preview" days of mild temps and I wasn't going to be denied one more walk outdoors!

But I had a challenge on my hands: the setting sun! Just because we had our daylight savings change this past weekend doesn't mean I've been magically transported to the Land of the Midnight Sun!

So if I was to get some bang for my buck and avoid getting chased out by the park police I'd have to hup-to!

I started right in with jogging, no walking, and pleasantly found myself able to keep it going for a while. The idea of doing a 5K didn't really occur until I covered some distance. At the turnaround point I took a break and walked thru "Lowdown"... :-) Then back to finish up the 5K distance jogging...with a little help from Huey Lewis' Power of Love.

It's been a super few days of hitting the trails, no not on two wheels, but on two feet!

Going to be a chilly rest-of-the-week, so it'll be time to take it indoors and get the heck back to the fitness center!

Keep it Sparkin' everybody!
