If not, here you go...
I finally ran 5km. Back in early September, my brother in-law and myself were supposed to run a 5k race. Then the snowstorm hit (yes you read that right...snow). Anyways, due to a shit ton of trees being broken and making the path unsafe, they cancelled it. Well postponed it. Until October 19th.
Anyways, ever since Sept 13th when the race was supposed to happen, I haven't ran. And even before that while I was training I never actually ran 5km, always expecting my race to be the first.
That all changed yesterday, when after a half ass run on Wednesday, I decided I really needed to get back on the 'training bus'.
I wasn't even planning on 5km, in my head I just was going to run 20 minutes, if that.
Then I started running, and it felt great. 5, 10, 15 minutes in. Then a quick, maybe 30 second walk- mainly because I despised the song that was playing and had to get the phone out of my sports bra (classy..I know). Then I kept going. My mental distance goals kept getting surpassed. Then finally I heard 35 minutes, 4.69km. Yes! I knew I was going to make it.
The best part was at the end of my normal route, I felt like I could keep going- at least until the lady said "40 minutes". I didn't. ( I mean, lets not ask for to much now.) Instead I pulled out my phone and saw..... 5.15km!
I DID IT!
I was so happy when I checked my runkeeper app and it said 38 minutes! So stoked.
Then I had to walk up the very steep hill to my house to get water......
(I have to thank my music for carrying me though... usually I listen to like poppy dance music running, but I switched it over to some rock, and well it helped distract me a lot more!)
