I suck at blogging. And that’s all I have to say about that.
I mentioned in the last post about running a 5k before my birthday. Guess what! I did it! On a beautiful October day, I ran the full 5k distance, despite my training plan getting interrupted and delayed when Z was majorly (like hospital ICU) sick in August. Up until that day I had never been able to go the full distance without running. In fact, I never have again after that day either. I was with 2 friends, both much better runners than I (they just ran a 1/2 marathon a few weeks ago and kicked ass!), and they pushed me through. It was a great course, just a great experience. I think my time was 41:14.
After that, I started to slack off on running and decided I needed another goal to give me incentive. So I signed up to do a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving in my hometown. I still didn’t feel I trained very consistently, but at least it did get me out there. The race was just over a week ago, on a chilly, wet morning. It was a hilly course and I did take some walking breaks to manage the hills, so I didn’t break my earlier record. My time was 42:29.
My birthday resolutions? Well, most of those I did not meet. But I’ll save that for another time.
