I love this time a year. I hope this is a time of peace for everyone and you have a great holiday season. It has been an interesting and challenging year, but I think a rewarding one with much growth.
I have been working hard to better my 5k time every Friday. I try to workout doing weights and a little running during the week and then on Friday I run a 5K on the treadmill. I got a little discouraged last week because my time was terrible and I kept getting shin splints when I ran. Still I continued on and these are my results:
Decided for various reasons not to try a 5K yesterday. My goal has been to complete a 5K every week. I began last week and I thought I did OK. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 47 min. I don't remember completely. That all changed.
It was a bit unusual for me this week. It was 10 pm and I had not been to the gym, so I decided to go. I have not been that late and there really wasn't anyone there. I have had the goal of running a 5k in 45 min on the treadmill and so far have not reached it. I decided to give it a go on Wed.
I was feeling really good on Tuesday, like super good, so I decided when we went to the gym that I wanted to try to complete a 5k on the treadmill. When we go on our cardio days I typically walk at 3 mph for 45 - 50 min. This is enough to get the blood moving, and with the ups and downs of the treadmill it gives me a decent workout for a beginner.
