Did my first official 5K today
Yeah I did my first century on Saturday and I did my first official 5K distance today.
The weather was a little cold, the course had hills which I haven't really run on, and it had mud. I got my shoes muddy and they are NEW!!!
I have done longer distances 4.2 or 4.4 miles but that was a stairclimb integrated over the course as well (Bisbee 1000), but never an official 5k. It was a good day to be out, but I definitely had some issues. I kept my pace up faster than I typically run on the treadmill. I think that as far as training goes, I need to run outside more. Running on the pavement/trails/ground is definitely much harder than running on the treadmill.
Below is the link to the run using my Timex Run Trainer
Hopefully I'll get into 10k and beyond soon. I thought about registering for a triathlon either Olympic distance or maybe a Half Ironman. I think I'd need to do some serious training.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got to spend time with their family, friends, and loved ones!
Any of you guys do triathlons or distance running of any sort?
