I have some other posts I need to catch up on, but this was pretty big for me! I “ran” a 5K race on Saturday.
I’ve been going to weekly endurance classes at my gym since October. I flip flopped until Thursday before registering for this race. I have been having problems with my calves when I run, but I decided to just go and do what I could do.
A few weeks ago during an endurance class, we did a 5 km time trial. I had a horrible time with my calves and it took me 40:21 because I had to stop and walk because of calf pain. So I thought if I could get a time of under 40 minutes, I’d be very happy. And I did it in 38:02. That time would have been a little quicker if I hadn’t stopped to talk to friends and their dog for a minute. Ha ha!
It was a very positive and inspiring event for me. While I’m always going to be a powerlifter at heart, I would like to improve my running times and skills.
My endurance coach is such an inspiration – she is trying so hard to get me to love running! Ha ha ha – well, I might dislike it less than I used to.
