Ran my third 5K this weekend

Sunday, June 15, 2008

I ran the Race for the Cure yesterday, and was thrilled to have shaved 4 and a half minutes off my previous time (from February, 33:42), finishing in 29:05!! A pretty respectable time. :) It was a hot and crowded course, too, so I feel really good that I met my goal of running an under-30 5K. I am officially starting my Runner's World training plan for the half-marathon tomorrow, and am psyched to be getting started with such an energizing run. According to the race pace calculator on the RW site, my 5K time should mean that I can shoot for a 2:15 half-marathon, which would be amazing. So that's my goal! Philly in 2:15.

I haven't been logging my food in quite a while, and should probably be getting back to it. It's so hard to get that disciplined again after not writing everything down for a while. But I'm actually thinking it's important not because I'm tending to *overeat*, but because I may not be eating enough. I'm finding it's hard to shift out of the "don't eat too much" mode into the "make sure you eat enough" mode. So tracking again should help me stay where I need to be.

    Yeah, Wendy! Fabulous time. Too, bad, though, that fabulous time of yours kept you from running another "slow" 5k with me. Wimp ;-)

    Good for you, and I *so* look forward to sharing in your half marathon journey!
