On Friday morning, I ran my first 5k, practically by accident. I spent 8 weeks training for it with the C25k (Couch to 5k) App. I finished it just in time for the New Orleans Crescent City Classic Run, but was not able to participate. Since the app had several practice sessions included after graduation, I decided to continue to train. It was raining outside, so I went to my local gym to run on the treadmill. As my run neared the 35 minute mark, I realized that if I ran for another 10 minutes, I would hit the 3.106 miles or 5k. So I did it.
Today, I walked out of my home, fully intending to continue the practice sessions. But when I clicked on the App, it took me back to the first session. I didn’t want to continue that session, so on the spur of the moment, I clicked on the 10k App ad, which I’ve been wondering about for a couple of weeks. So, I guess I’m now training for a 10k.
If you see me past out on the side of road, please honk and try to raise me back to consciousness.
