This morning I did my 5K for the Healthy Heart Weekend sponsored by Lori over at Finding Radiance. My husband went to the gym with me, but refused to take pictures. So… I did it myself. LOL I felt silly, but who cares?! Gotta have some fun sometimes. 🙂
(dialogue: “Halfway there.”)
Do you know how hard it is to video yourself jogging?!?! If I made someone laugh at the gym today I’m glad..we all need to laugh at ourselves sometimes. Back to the story….
I decided to take it a bit slower so I could finish the whole thing jogging. So, I maintained a 4.7 mph pace for the whole run.
Had to do it in two bits because the treadmills at the gym only allow for a 30-minute workout and then they automatically shut down to a cool down mode. So, I did my 30, snapped a photo and then got back on for the completion of a 5K or 3.1 miles. 🙂
Those last few minutes were so rough. I even tried running at 5.0 mph (12-min mile) just to finish faster, but I thought my legs were going to quit, so I slowed up again. I did do the last minute that fast just to be done with it. I knew I’d be happy to finish it up right, and I was.
Have a great weekend everyone! I’ve got more heart healthy plans for this weekend and I’ll update about how they go on Monday. 🙂
