Even in Basic Training (USAF) I never needed to run more than 2 miles.  Now after having sat out any meaningful exercise for several months and shirking cardio for at least 18 months, my current 6-week fitness challenge requires a pre- and post-program 5K for time to measure improvement.  Since the weather was spectacular this evening I got straight out after work and pounded the pavement.  It's nothing to brag about, but I'm proud that I did it and didn't die (so far).

 

First ever 5K time: 36:54

 

My legs are going to be so mad at me tomorrow.

Not dying on your first 5K is definitely something to brag about.  Well done!

Woohoo!  Got the second one done today--on the treadmill at the gym because the weather is crap.

 

Second ever 5K time: 32:15

 

My legs are already mad. :D

#3 completed.  I'm actually almost maybe starting to kind-of not hate it. :lol:

 

Third ever 5K time: 31:40

 

No anger from the lower extremities this time, but my hands got a little cold and they're achy now.  Best part of today's run is that I finally did the whole thing without any walking at all.

Why thank you, Ms. Terah. :)

The legs may be (grudgingly) willing but the lungs are weak. :D  I'm going to keep pushing myself to see if I can get below 30 min by the end of the challenge.  Only five more runs to get it done, and with a bit of luck I'll be under 220 lbs for the final attempt.  I am definitely not built for distance running...

...but I'm very dangerous over short distances. ;)
