5k, Dietbet, and DH's work trip

June 29th, 2017 at 05:44 am

The 5k was Tuesday night. That was my first time doing one. I didn't run the whole thing, and I'm a little disappointed that I didn't pay closer attention to the time. I came in at 40.59, but had I known I was that close, I would have pushed harder to come in under 40. I wasn't even sore the next day, so I know that wasn't my best. DH did well. Considering it had been a week and a half since he'd last run due to an ankle injury, he finished in 27.01. His time combined with the 2 other males who finished after him for our team won my company 3rd place in the male team category.

I'm just half a pound from goal which is right on target for the July 9th weigh-in. We have 2 kickball games tonight (plus I'm running before) and a full day walking around an amusement park tomorrow, so I should hit it early next week and will start pushing on to the next goal.

DH got asked yesterday to work on an out-of-town assignment, so he will be headed to NC for a month starting the 10th. Since he will be working 10-12 hour days and getting per diem, he's decided to take next Monday and Wednesday off to spend some time with me before going. Since we're trying to be frugal, we will likely just go to a local park and play Pokemon.

    Nice work! I'm hoping to be able to post that I met my goal of getting under 130 soon. I've been hovering in the 132 range for a week or so, but I'm hoping to bust through that plateau yet this summer. It is hard though when social things come up because they're so often tied to good food and drink that's hard to resist!

    I'm impressed you ran a 5K. Good job!

    I think my first 5K was about 46 minutes. So 40:59 sounds pretty good to me. Smile
