Back in February I ran my first 5K of 2011. It was also the worst 5K time I've had to date. I friend with a friend/co-worker at an area rec center.
My training for this 5K was pathetic in comparison, especially when it came to outside training. I hadn't ran outside since the fall when it came time for this 5K. I had done all my running on a treadmill.
I hung with my friend for the first mile around minutes, but then I couldn't keep up. The cold air was no match for my lungs at the time. I finished in 33:56.
The part that I'm most ashamed of, I've hardly improved my pace or my training since then. I've kept up a somewhat regular workout schedule, even if it may be week. I managed to get 1-2 in every week. One of those is kickboxing, and I'm trying to get at least one run in a week.
Let's hoping I can turn this around soon. Especially since I'm supposed to run a leg of the Akron Marathon with a group of co-workers this September!
