5 k COMPLETE! Now to train for the HM+

Sunday, May 22, 2011

This morning was my 5k... not a registered walk , but a 'WALK IT' with Spark/ FB friends interested in supporting each other! I woke up to rain and after a great breakfast and cup of coffee decided I'd walk OUTSIDE instead of indoors... Although it was raining it was warm, I watched birds collecting worms, walked around the manmade lake in my subdivision, took a few photos, dodged puddles and thought of those 'joining me' in their own cities around the GLOBE!

My 5k was actually a 55 minute walk and just over 7000 steps on the pedometer, about 3.6 miles or 6kms give or take...

    wonderful! Didn't know such a thing was going on!! I attended a heart walk Saturday though and have a couple pictures. We didn't walk the 5k because we had to get home for a dance recital but we walked a mile while we were there.

    We attended opening ceremonies - my great niece was chosen as the tshirt design winner for the walk. I did the other half of a 5k on Sunday while I was watching a 9 year old's ball game!

    Great Job Nicole!!! emoticon
    And Thanks for letting me know about this challenge. It was a nice thought yesterday to know that I wasn't the only one walking the 5K.
    I joined the 5k walk/jog 5week workout. Are you going to join me?

    Next time you do one, let me know. I am always looking for "races" and most official 5K races have gotten too pricey for me.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon That's great, Nicole! Thanks so much for telling me about the 5k your way. As you know I had a REAL 5k walk today I signed up for and my time was pretty close to yours(2 minutes 30 seconds more) which is encouraging to me since I consider you alot more fit than I am. Keep up the great work! So by the HM training I'm assuming you're talking about the 14 miler for Aug 13? I'll be training for that too along with the others so this will be a good thing for us to think about when we're training-that even though we're not physically near each other we're sort of training "together" in spirit anyway.

    I walked 5K to church this morning. Too bad I pushed myself a wee bit too much and hurt my foot (still hurts). But it wasn't too bad weather wise. :)

    I walked to your neighborhood and around that lake earlier last week. Lovely place - lotsa mosquitoes! :P
