Wahoo's 5K

So, over the weekend, Husband and I ran a 5K.
Now I know that not every race can be great.
But this one? Not.good.at.all.

(here we are before the race.)

First of all, I woke up in the morning feeling like dirt. Either that, or what i would imagine one feels like after getting hit by a truck.
Totally gross.
But I sucked it up and got ready, and figured that if all else failed, at least I could walk some of the race.

We got to the race and got ready to go, and I just was not feeling it.
When we started, I tried to set up my Nike+ so that I had an idea of my pace, but because it was a brand new phone and I hadn't yet set up my sensor, it was picking up everybody's signal, so it wouldn't register.

I ended up running the first mile or so, and then walked for a little bit. I had a hard time finding my pace, and my breathing was kind of funky.
So I kind of ran/walked the rest of the race.

So disappointing.

I started Couch 2 5K about a year ago. You'd think by now I could run the whole thing.
But no. I did finish at least, and I did beat the time of my first official 5K (which was last July) but by no means did I PR. 
Which I was kind of hoping for in the back of my mind.
Way in the back.

I didn't do so well, but Husband? So proud...

You win some, you lose some. You finished... that's a win! :)

I am glad you walked some and didn't push your self too hard, especially with not feeling well. Awesome that you did it, and finished despite not feeling well. Love ya!

You did it, so congrats! It's a continuous learning process, use the info to get better but don't dwell on it.
