Channeling my inner Phoebe

Friday, March 18, 2011

It wasn't pretty and it wasn't fast but I completed my "Virtual 5K" by actually doing my walk/jog outside! This is huge for me, as when I jog I look like Phoebe on "Friends".

I did my 5k in roughly 40 minutes. I didn't do the Spark plan because I do not have a stopwatch. I would walk one block and jog one block, or at least try to! My knee started to ache about half way through but I slowed down a bit and walked through it.

I don't think I will ever qualify as a runner, but I am glad that I did this!

Happy Friday!

    What matters is what you will look like from the results of all you doing! Congrats on 5k, I am still trying to walk a quarter of a mile.

    thrilled for you that you found a way to do it despite your treadmill issues from yesterday, Karyn, you rock!! When you jog you may look like Phoebe, but when I dance I think I probably look like Elaine from Seinfeld!! We are a pair!!
