My 5k

I did my 5k yesterday, actually, 3.21 miles, in a little under 32 minutes. 9:45 minute miles. Granted, I know it's no record, but I did break the 10min/mi mark, which for me, for 5k is good. When I did the corporate challenge several years ago, it took my 35+ minutes, for 3.11 miles.

It's nice to be able to walk the next day after having run, which wasn't really an option after my first run a couple weeks ago, when I barely made it a mile before having to walk. Next time out, I am going to go for 35 minutes, then the week after, 40, then 45, and so on. I should be up to 10k in about 6 weeks at that rate. More realistically 5, since my times should get better.

I need an icon for this.
