Ok, I'm going to pretend my week started on Saturday when I ran in my first 5K!!! I did it and I finished it, but I did not enjoy it. My girlfriend Julie joined me and walked it. It was pouring rain the whole time and fairly cold, the start w... Read more

Well, this week is not turning out as planned. I ran my Week9 Day 1 and it went badly. I completed it but had sharp pain in my foot and ankle. The cool down walk made it go away and a mini sprint in there didn't hurt. I was optimistic until... Read more

I can't believe I did it last night. I really can't. I'm going to have to say that I probably went the same pace last night as I did the other days of the week. I had an almost fall that totally messed with my time. And I tried a different r... Read more

Yes, it's done. Week 7 is done. Total 2.89 miles, 2.29 running during the 25 minutes. Heat and humidity were exciting. It was like breathing through a sponge. I forgot how miserable it was to run during 80-90% humidity and 90 degree heat. ... Read more

Week 6 Day 3 is in the books right before the rains from Hurricane Hanna started. This was really hard for me. I think because it was still hot out and very humid I was having trouble getting into it. But I did 2.9 miles and the 5 minutes of ... Read more

I think I have mentioned in the C25K team that I used to run with my 2 dogs but they slowed me down. Well, all the weeks I had to repeat were the ones I ran with my pups. Since I started leaving them at home I've been making progress and reall... Read more

Running clinic???
Saturday, August 16, 2008      0 comments

About when I started my Couch to 5K program I got something in the mail for something called a "Running Clinic" at a somewhat local hospital. It was a little surreal as it came to me in my maiden name, which I haven't had in over 6 years, and a... Read more
