Exercise Update 2/21/11

I bit the bullet and signed up for a 5k.  It’s not like I can run the whole thing (more like half), but you don’t have to run the whole 5k to have completed it, right?  So, on March 13th I’ll be running the City of Dublin’s 13th annual 5k Shamrock Fun Run/Walk.

When I told DH that I was going to sign up for it, he said “You better get to running!”  Then he set up the treadmill for me while I changed out of jeans and a t-shirt.  I set the incline to 1% and got started.

A 5k is 3.1 miles and I wanted to see if I could complete it in under 45 minutes.  I did!  I went 3.11 miles in a little under 44 minutes.  Yay!  All I have to do is keep working on the time (and my ability to jog continuously) by training 3 or 4 times a week.   At least one of the jogs will be outside in my neighborhood, since the race will be outside in a hilly-ish locale.

So, yeah…  I jogged and walked and completed a 5k on my treadmill.  Go me!
