10k Training: 5 Mile Run!!

PS don’t forget about the Road ID Giveaway, keep yourself save while running/walking/kayaking whatever!

Last week Thursday I got home from an early day of work (4:30-1) and decided to go on a run. I wanted a ‘real’ run I’ve got a 7k coming up in 19 days and I wanted to make sure I  could still do it. I’ve not tried to run anything over a 5k since my shoulder injury so the goal was to run a 7k. I decided to use a new trial less running in circles more away and back + hills, I really need to work on hills. About 1.5 miles in I realized I was feeling good. I decided to keep running till I hit 2.5 miles, I thought it was a little crazy and when I was running through the unplowed parts for the trail I considered turning around but I kept going. I knew right when I turned around I was going to make it. I’m so excited I did!!

When I started this ‘running thing’ I thought I would do a 5k or two. Little did I know how addictive it was. I never thought I would be able to run that far or for that long. Now my new goal is at least a 10k (possibly a 10 mile) by the end of the season as you can see with my new title ’10k Training.’

Oh and I’m another 1.5lbs down for grand  total of:

  1. Awesome! I envy your ability to run!! (My doctor won’t let me). How are you liking My Fitness Pal? I had been plateauing for a couple of weeks and found out today why; because I wasn’t eating all of my calories but now I know better.
