The good, the bad, the ugly

14 Jul

Wasn’t the easiest to drag my butt out of bed this morning, but once I got outside and started running, I felt pretty good. Good enough that I thought about extending the route. Trouble was, the route around the park is about maxed at 0.85 mi, so… I tried the whole loop around the golf course. That’s the good. The other good thing is, okay granted the pace wasn’t much, but not much huffing and puffing, so the CV isn’t holding me back.

When I got back to the house, I checked the shuffle-ometer — only 1.6 mi. That’s unfortunate, I thought I was going to be a lot closer to two. And, bad math on my part, 5k is 3 mi. Whoops. So now I’ve done… half.

The ugly part was having to stop and walk a couple times (using the old 100 paces rule from my grad school running partner). Wasn’t the wind, it was the legs, particularly the calves. Hmm.

Well anyway, Saturday I’m going to pick up my packet for the race. Money’s in, shirt’s bought, etc. In 6 days, I’m giving it a shot anyway.
