I went for a 5K run this morning before starting my workday from home.
I last ran on Friday, for the first time in a long time. And, I decided to take Saturday as a recovery day. I wanted to run on Sunday but it poured rain, all day. And, yesterday, Monday, I had a “hell day” at work – a really bad one – and I had to manage my son’s Little League team in a game last night. No time to run, at all.
Actually, because of the bad day, and the game, I had to work again once we got home from the game. And, I was up until 1 AM dealing with that issue. I also did not sleep well – I woke up at 3 AM with terrible hiccups (which is extremely rare for me). Needless to say, I was not happy when the alarm went off at 6 AM to get up.
The run was OK. I took my harder route to push myself. And, I had to break it down to a walk at the 2.5 and 2.8 mile marks, for a tenth of a mile, each time. Overall, I covered the 3.1 miles in 26 minutes and 47 seconds.
Now, to push myself more, I signed up for a 5K race on June 2nd. It’s a huge crowd. (I’ve done this one before.) I’d like to run at least 5 more times between now and the race.
This is workout #33 for 2013.
