PR: Personal Record- not that that means much...)
12 min/mile 1st mile
13.2 min/mile average
Ran 2 minutes, walked 1 the entire time.
Friday night I went running on a different route, but the same distance, and it was 5 whole minutes longer, and separated into two halves with an hour or two break in between. (I met Molly at ColdStone.) HUGE improvement in 3 days!!
Sweating like mad. Tingling with accomplishment. Meager though it may be to other athletes- to this 'adult-onset athlete' it is just short of miraculous. Off to shower.
BTW- I decided against the 5k that is this Saturday. Partly because it is so soon and partly because it seemed kind of lame with no registration fee, no racing number, no t-shirt, small attendance. I want my first race to have all the excitement of an organized race. So I paid my $17 registration fee and registered for one on June 6th that is basically around Molly's neighborhood. I can pick up my race packet on June 3rd that has my number, t-shirt, goodie bag. I'm giddy thinking about it! I almost did a 5k tonight...Just need to extend that route a bit.
