I ended up taking not quite a week off.
Sunday September 14th: I took the kids for a bike ride on the trail to a park . the ride round trip was 11.53 miles.
Thursday, September 17th: I only did two loops at the park for 1.02 miles. I didn’t want to push it, knowing I was going to running a bit longer with my sister Saturday afternoon. Time was 11:36.
Saturday, September 19: We walked a mile to the bile trail, ran the bike trail (1 mile down and another mile back) and then we walked the mile back to her house. total 4 miles. We ran the whole way mile down. My first straight mile running since high school! LOL!! We did walk a bit on the mile back . It was the middle of the afternoon and I thought I hydrated enough, but alas, I did not. the walk back to her house was about 2 minutes slower.
Monday, September 21: I ran most of a 5K today in preparation for Saturday. I feel ready. Since the race is in the morning, I feel that I’ll be able to run the whole race. My time today was 39:45. I did stop to walk for a few mintues so I could get a drink of water and twice to cross streets. My goal Wednesday is to run and not to have to stop for a drink at the park. 🙂
