DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 07 June 2018

I survived another 5K! My time SUCKED but I survived and I made it to the end without flagging down any of the kids with walkie talkies or EMS guys on golf carts. I finished 3.5 miles in 1:05:15, pace 18.39 per mile. I did mention I was slow right?? I started off jogging and then walked a lot when I realized I would probably end up gasping for air on the side of the road like I fish out of water. So I walked a lot.. and jogged very sparingly in sporadic bursts of "WHY HASN"T THIS ENDED YET???"

Plus I kind of want to know if the kids were there to prevent me from turning around between the cones with flimsy caution tape connecting them or if they were there to help me? I could have totally ducked under that tape. I had a plan all worked out in my head. I could take a really long time tying my shoe..slowly inching over.. and then not run the whole thing. I didn't do this but.. I thought about it. lol

Now... I need to search for another 5K. Because apparently I like punishment? Maybe this will become a new hobby until I can actually run the whole time. Plus I increased my time since last year. I don't like that. Sure I'm 20 lbs heavier and if I remember right it's only by 5-8 minutes but still... I want to be faster not slower. There is a mad cow run coming up. Maybe that is more my style. lol Plus my boss who is probably 10-15 years older than me finished in 35 minutes. So there is also that... Being competitive and out of shape is just a weird struggle.

Hey, my friend ..... You did great! Super attitude and the great thing is that your boss is probably thinking that you didn't want to show him up? Great strategy.... Personally, I put my running to bed again. My legs wouldn't let me sleep .... and I thought I looked cooler walking.
