Today I start my running blog but not my running career. I actually started running last fall while my son G was at football practice and I wanted/needed to do something other than sit on my butt on Facebook. I started with a Couch to 5K app on my phone and went from there.
So far this year I have done 3 5K races and have my 4th planned for this Sunday. G and I will be running this one together so we are very excited to do that. If you are wondering we are doing Goldy’s 5K in Minneapolis, Mn.
I am just making a come back from a hip injury than has been bothering me for a few weeks. As a result of that I had been running intervals to try to keep my base line activity level up.
Today’s run was my first in 3 weeks that I ran more than 1.5 miles without taking a walk break to nurse my hurt hip. Today I made it to 3.15 miles before I called it quits. Ok I had my cheer leader/drill instructor G with me pushing me not to quit. Man 10 yr old boys have too much energy lol. Anyway we did those 3.15 miles in 31:00 so I am super happy with our time.
Tomorrow we hope to do it again but with a better time. Our goal is to beat our last 5K race time of 31:28. I think that we can do it.
I figure I should add this…
