It’s been a while folks! Life has been a little hectic lately to say the least, but I’m finally here to share the results of my 5K I ran last weekend.
The morning didn’t start out so great as I woke up at 3:30 with the babies and didn’t go back to sleep. I was actually really nervous about running this race. I have never put pressure on myself like this before.
The course was pretty flat, which was great! I started my RunKeeper app and at 5 minutes, it told me my pace was 9:05, which is insane! I’ve never run that fast before! I stopped a few times to walk, mainly to get my heart rate down. At one point I looked down and my heart rate was at 97 bpm!
I finished the race with a time of 33:44! I honestly could not believe it! I cut off 3 minutes from the last 5K I ran almost two years ago. I was feeling pretty good!
I forgot to stop my watch after the race, but my heart rate was still pumping and I was walking back to the car, so I guess it’s okay! 😉
That afternoon, we headed over to my in-laws for an early Father’s Day celebration.
I volunteered to make lunch, so I made tacos. They really hit the spot!
Overall, it was a great day! I’m looking forward to running the next one on August 3. My husband is running it with me and going to push the girls in the stroller.
Have you ran a race recently? How did it go?
