First 10K

Well I did the 10K race today.  There were 13 000 people in it, very crowded.  I ran as hard as I could, couldn't push anymore.  My time was 1:02:20, I am a little sore but it feels good to do something I said I could never do, expecially when I started running last July - never dreamed I would be doing a 10K.

10K practice

We were at an out of town track meet this weekend.  We were staying about 10K from the meet.  This morning I decided to try and run it in preparation for next weekend.  I did it in about 1 hour, I am happy about that - but I am stiff and tired tonight!

Squeaked in a run tonight

In between dropping Danica off at her pottery class and then going to pick her up again I have squeaked in a bit of a run.  I am a bit stiff and sore so not my best one.  I may be able to run tomorrow but then that is probably it until the big race in a week and a bit.  We are at a track meet this weekend and then the following week I won't be doing a lot, want to rest and be ready!

My last big run before my race

The 10K is in 2 weeks so this was my last chance to do a long run.  I ran on Thursday, a short one with the running club at school.  Today I did a 9K run in 56 minutes.  Felt good too.  Never did I ever think I would be able to run 10K and here I am in less than a year of running ready to do it.  When I started I could barely run for a minute!  Can't wait til the race.

Run those dinners off!

The weather was not bad today... clear but cool so I decided to try and do a long run.  I put on hubby's GPS watch and off I went.  I did an 8K run in 50 minutes, felt good too.  I realized I can run farther but it seems that after about 30 minutes I am bored and just want it done and overwith!  Next is to try and find a 10K route to see how I do.

Singing in the Rain

well not really singing but I did run in the rain or rather a sprinkle.  I figured I better go as it is supposed to only get worse as the weekend goes on.
