So yesterday I wanted to do a practice 5k. Basically just run the length of a 5k at the gym. I didn't get up nearly early enough to try one outside so unless I wanted to run in 97 degree weather that was out.
I did a brisk walk to warm up walking to the gym and then a few min. on the treadmill. Then I selected the 5k program.
I checked the time a few times. Around the second mile I was tired and hot (the gym wasn't that cool, grr...). At this point though I knew I could do it. Unless I fainted I was not slowing down.
I kept on and around the last half-mile or so I went up to 5.7 which wasn't a huge difference. The last tenth of a mile (which I sprint in 5k's) I did at a 6.5.
I felt awesome. I've been a bit down lately and it made me feel good.
I am making a sad face because it was so typical fatty to get icing in my hair licking something. :P I ate about 5 points of icing. :( Oh well! I didn't eat a cupcake. Well I tried a bite of John's.
The final result. :)
