Today I ran my second 5k. It was hard, I was tired, sore for some unknown reason, and I may have not waited long enough after lunch. I really wanted to go at 8 this morning, but the gym doesn't open until noon on Sundays. But I pushed through and I did it in...


That is 2:05 faster than my time back in March when I ran my first 5k. I only walked one minute and I picked up the pace after that. I was really hoping to get below 34 minutes, and I did. I'm very proud of myself!

Where to from here? I'm not sure. The school year is almost out, so I'm going to keep running for that. But until I know where I'm going to be and what my running options are for the summer, I can't really draw up a training plan. But I have a few ideas floating around waiting to be put on paper. I'm thinking training for a 10k as a means of helping increase my endurance.

    Remember to do a proper warm up then actually do a light stretch of your legs. This will get you loose for a better run and quite possibly faster times if that's where you want to go.
    In any case, you've achieved goals! You should embrace that, feeling good that you've found something new within!
