This weekend we all trekked to the college of some of our high school friends for a 5k race. They were both running, as was I, and Tim was on childcare duty. He's a good sport, my Tim.
I hadn't run at all in over a week and really hadn't trained much since doing the half in March so I was a little worried about how I would do-no one ever wants to make a fool of themselves!
However, I did really well for me, I beat my 5k time from October by almost exactly three minutes, so I was very pleased with that. I ended up at 33:41. That's the best I've ever done. Our friend also won first place in his age bracket, so that was fun. He was super excited about it.
I think if I could/would actually train at least three times a week I could do a lot better but it just doesn't happen. I'd like to run once a week in the evenings and then do a Sunday run with one of the boys on their bikes on the bike path through the summer. I think that's do-able, but we'll see, it's my goal anyway. Gotta shoot for something, right?
