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.
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.
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...
