Red Hook 5k!

So we finished up our 8-week beginner training with a bang! We did a practice run of the race course on Thursday. It was 90 degrees and HOT! We all finished cranky, but we were at Red Hook, so went in and had a beer and food - what could be better than that (will run for beer!).

So on to the 5k - Today's race went ok. I had a stomach ache, so mile 2 was a bit of a pain (literally.) I finished the first mile in 12 minutes, second in 11, third in 13.....for a final time of 36:23. A PR for me, since it was my first race! It can only get better! Red Hook / Runners Alley puts on a good race. Maybe I'll do another!

40 minutes - are they trying to kill us!

Beautiful weather! Windy, warm, sunny!

I believe they are trying to kill us - actually it wasn't THAT bad. we did 40 minutes - and by the last run, I felt pretty good. I could go another mile! Or at least another 1/2!

30 minutes of running - YIKES

So we bumped up to 10 minute runs with a 3 minute walk break - big jump from 3 minutes! The middle run was a bit painful....i started wheezing! My allergies are a little out of wack - that must be it.
