Days 12, 13, & 14.

14 Apr

So, I’ve been lax in blogging for a couple of reasons. There’s been a crisis going on in my extended family, so I’ve been pretty distracted. Then it was Holy Week, which is the busiest time of year for anyone in the church. And my wireless router has been on the fritz, and I was too distracted and busy to find my ethernet cord until recently. Hence, no blogs.

Jogging has been going slightly better. There have been a few times where I jogged for five minutes or so, which is a huge step up for me. But today’s workout wanted me to jog for eight minutes, and I almost died just at the thought of it. I did manage almost six minutes at one point, but that was about my limit. My big mistake in today’s workout was that that I didn’t get up early or workout this morning, but I waited until late afternoon, after I’d had a big lunch. And ice cream. Ugh, never again. I’m definitely a morning workout person.

There’s a little less than a month to the 5K, and I’m getting kind of nervous. I’ve decided that my main goal is to finish the race in under 50 minutes. Right now I’m at just about an hour, and I’m hoping that in the next three and a half weeks, I can shave some time off of that. But like I’ve said before, I’m not too worried about my time or where I place or any of that — I just want to finish!

Tomorrow, I think I’m going to get up early and head over to the high school track to work out. Tomorrow is supposed to be a five minute warm up, twenty minutes of jogging, then a five minute cool down. Twenty minutes of jogging. I might die, but at least I’ll do it outside!
