Back in the saddle

Or in my running shoes, to be exact 🙂

Well, after two months exactly (to the day), of no running (of which I am not proud) we started to run again. This partly was caused by the fact that we all (including my oldest son Edward) registered for another 5K (Edward will be running a kids’ run of 1.4 K) on Thanksgiving day. We have to earn our turkey and stuffing by huffing and puffing for it 😉 Actually most of my husband’s family decided to run as a team, so that will be pretty awesome. For a lot of them, it’s a first time to run a 5K. I’m sure it will be great! I am already getting really excited about it!

I was afraid that after so long, I’ll have to pretty much start from scratch of my C25K program, but I actually had a pretty good run today. I ran (and walked for about 200 m twice in the middle) for 34 mins for a total of 3.75K. Pretty slow, I know, but I was expecting worse.  Total calories burned: 381. So, not too bad. I know I’ll be pretty sore tomorrow, but tonight it felt good.

    Way to go!!! That’s so awesome and encouraging that you didn’t lose your ability to run like you thought! I’m still trekking along….running is SO hard for me! Right now I’m in the middle of week 5 on the c25k program — running a total of 1.5 miles with a little walking in between. I’m excited about our race too!

  2. Thanks for your encouragement Diana! It really means a lot to me. I know you’ve been working really hard these past few months. Running is extremely hard for me to, and I still don’t like it 😉 I keep hoping that I would (Like most people say, they get used to it), but it STILL hasn’t happened for me 😦
