This last week was a good training week. I also ran my first official 5K on Saturday. It was ok. Not super awesome like many runners talk about their first race/run is, but I did it. I over came a lot of personal fears but I was not able to enjoy the moment either. Still working on that one. I mostly survive outings but rarely enjoy being out and around other people. One-on-one is fine but put me in a crowd and I feel like the walls are closing in on me.
We have a running group in town that I hope to one day be a part of. It would be nice to meet other runners. Right now the extra trips to town would just be to much, (thank you gas prices,) but I’m still not going to give up on the idea that I’ll join them one day.
Here is how last weeks training went.
Monday: 40 min run = 3 miles plus 1 mile warm up and cool down
Tuesday: 50 walk/run that was just under 4 miles
Wednesday: Biked 1 1/2 miles. Normally I bike 5 to 7 miles but my bike was acting up so I had to go home to get it looked at and then didn’t go back out.
Thursday: 40 min run = just over 3 miles
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: 5K Freedom Run = 3.1 miles but found out it was just under 3 miles.
Total miles for the week: Running – 14 miles Biking – 1 1/2 miles
