What a weekend!

I finished my first ever 5k Run/Walk on Saturday morning. I finished 1905 out of 3409 participants, 62nd out of 110 in the 50-54 age group. I walked 4 minutes, ran 1 minute intervals throughout the race. According to my watch, I did it in 45:02. I know one thing, I need a better pair of shoes. My shins and calves were pretty sore yesterday, so I went to Ikea and a flea market and ended up with just over 13,000 steps Sunday afternoon. It's times like these, I'm glad I have a desk job. I'm still pretty sore today.

My goal is to run (not walk) an entire 5K next spring. If I increase my running intervals every two weeks or so, it should work out.

Have a great week!
