Lunch time run

My first ever lunch time run was today at noon. Hence the title of this post. It was probably low 60s and just a little wind out of the east (which always seemed to be uphill).

I ran on concrete in some old shoes. I had a banana for breakfast at 7 am. But I ran anyway.

Why?

Because I am slower than the people I am coaching. And because I was in better shape 2 years ago.

So I mapped out a looping 5k around the area I work at. It was tough because the the walking path was very winding.


I made in 26.58 for the 5k. That is an 8.42 pace. I believe this is my faster time for a 5k.

I am pleased.
