Last evening on our way to church I shared with my husband about walking 3 miles in 45 minutes earlier that day. He asked me if I’ve been running lately. I told him no, but I’m going to get back on it in a couple of weeks. I told him about my goal of running another 5K this year, but that I really want to get to running 3 miles a few times a week, not just once for a race.
In a week I have an outpatient procedure scheduled that could put me out for a couple of days, so I really don’t want to start running until I can continue without stopping. So, I told him in the meantime I’m pushing myself to walk faster. He then asked how fast I ran my first 5K two years ago. Um, 43:44 minutes.
We had a good chuckle at the fact that two years and another 25 pounds later I can walk almost almost as fast as I ran then. 🙂
