I went for a run.
My 5k is Saturday. The Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania Thin Mint Sprint happens on Saturday in Philadelphia.
I don’t have an accurate time for my run today, as I didn’t take my phone so it wouldn’t distract me. I did more than 3 miles in about 42 minutes.
The last time I tried to run a 5k, two years ago at the Yuengling Lagger Jogger, I came in at 44 minutes. I feel a little disappointed that I haven’t returned to my previous good training times of 38 and 39 minutes.
But after almost breaking my toe and weathering winter illness, training has not been part of my routine for at least a month.
I have many friends reminding me to do my best and have fun, but my competitive nature wants to do well.
And I want to actually run… but I’m still pausing to catch my breath frequently.
