Valentines Weekend Virtual 10k on Friday


I am busy on the weekend and didn’t want to wimp out so I took the day off from work.  How motivated is that?

Fridays I play tennis at 7am so I did that.  Fortunately for me, there is a gym there.  No excuse. 

I changed into running clothes, filled up my water bottle, grabbed my iPod off to watch several episodes of Criminal Minds and I headed to the treadmill.

I practiced this 10k last Saturday because I normally only compete in 5k races.  I alternated between running 1 mile and walking 1 mile and it took me about 80 minutes.

I started out the same way but I wanted to get it done so I walked less and ran more.  However, I ran slower so not to run out of gas (but occasionally pumped it).

The result: 1:23:00 minutes -The good news is that I can only improve. 

I think I’ll go out to lunch to celebrate!
